Part of running a successful business is making sure your organisation is as efficient and effective as possible – and that can sometimes result in a reorganisation or redundancies.
But before embarking on any changes, you must comply with your legal obligations or you could face time-consuming and costly claims from disgruntled staff.
Throughout the process, you must follow the correct procedures as well as maintaining the morale of staff who will remain.
Gotelee’s team of employment lawyers have a wealth of experience in this area, advising businesses, large and small, from a wide range of sectors.
We can support you every step of the way, taking the stress out of the process and providing you with a plan of action that balances your legal obligations with your commercial objectives.

Buying or selling a business is one of the most important commercial decisions you are ever likely to make. That’s why you need expert legal support at your side throughout the whole process.
The complex Transfer of Employment (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (or TUPE for short), which protect all employees, is one area you’ll need to understand – a failure to comply with your legal obligations here can have significant implications.
The purpose of TUPE is to protect employees if the business in which they are employed changes hands.
You’ll also need expert legal support if you are outsourcing, insourcing or tendering for business to ensure you understand how TUPE applies to your employees.
