Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. Firstly, I need to ask some initial questions to determine the legal position.
You will most likely have obligations under TUPE as you are taking on a new contract. That means you will have to take over any existing staff which are assigned to that contract and currently work for the provider that supplies the service. If any of the transferring employees have worked in total for less than 2 years then you can dismiss them quite easily without any risks. However, anyone with more than 2 years’ service would have to be taken on and you have to look at potential redundancies if you have more people than you need.
