TUPE

does it apply here?

Didn't find your answer?

have a situation where a client is selling the lease on their tattoo shop and their client base

the business will in effect continue from one day to the next after sale

the shop currently has several staff, the new owner is arguing that there is no TUPE in place as they are just buying the goodwill and they doesnt need the staff anyway

we think there is a strong arguement for TUPE, the client hasnt taken any legal advice, despite us advising them to on numerous occassions

would be interetsed to see what others think?

if TUPE is in place and the staff are not needed, will the new owener be resposnsible for redundancy payments?

Why are you concerned about this aspect of your client's business affairs? In the great scheme of what you say, it really is small fry.

In dismissing the need for professional legal advice, your client seems to ignore any sensible considerations. He/She sounds an absolute gem and, deserves everything that falls from the horses behind.

If you are interested - rather than intending to give employment law advice to your client - there are 8.6 million "hits" for TUPE on Google. Or have a read of the Regulations: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2006/246/regulation/3/made

The answers are

Yes TUPE applies
Yes the purchaser is liable for redundancy if he doesn't want the staff
BUT
Talk to a solicitor

Your comment was removed by Accounting Web because it was unprofessional, offensive, added no value and no-one wants to read it.

ive reported you yet again. Why do you think you can insult people and constantly abuse Accounting Webs terms and conditions?
When will Accounting Web take action?

That's an odd response to my having recommended a decent solicitor to the OP!

Well, that appears to be somewhat cutting off one's nose to spite one's face if the monitoring goes further than monitoring, A Web is imho a much poorer place when Portia is in absentia.

Maybe the site should run with gold stars re valuable contributions and demerits for insults, on that basis she/he would be very safe.
