Acquisition and TUPE

Protection of employment rights during a transfer – known as TUPE – can be a minefield. Yet integrating the acquired workforce into your existing set up can be even more difficult!

Get it wrong and it can make your acquisition completely unprofitable.  Get it right and your business will go from strength to strength.  We will guide you through the pitfalls.

Top Tip:  if your are planning an Acquisition make sure your Employer Branding and Glassdoor does you justice.  It’s the first thing your newly acquired team will look at.

Every day was like an episode of the Apprentice!
