As an employer, you know that no business stays still. When your business expands or changes, its commercial priorities may require you to reorganise your workforce arrangements.
In some cases this will require you to simply recruit new staff members in order to meet growing demand from customers. In other instances, you may need to divert resources away from areas of your business which are not proving so fruitful, resulting the difficult choice to make employees redundant. Alternatively, you may decide to sell your business or acquire another business.
At each stage of your business’ development, meeting your obligations as an employer under employment legislation will be key to minimise any potential claims that may arise.
Our Employment Law team can advise you on all stages of the recruitment process. We can also help you to manage employees if your business has to go through a period of reorganisation or restructuring. Our specialist advisers can advise you on TUPE and redundancy procedures, highlighting your employer duties and obligations to employees. We can also offer training for your management staff to equip them with the knowledge and skills required to manage employees during a period of business growth or through a change management process.
In most employment situations taking legal advice early on can often stop the situation from escalating and will save you time and money later. With our proactive, commercial advice and business growth service, Thorntons Employment Law Solicitors can help find the right solution for you over business change and growth issues.
