Dealing with possible redundancies or restructuring, or staff transferring from or to another company is now a common part of business life. Both senior managers and line managers need to understand the implications of all these situations, both so that they can plan responsibly and so that they can safeguard their organisation from risk of litigation.

The legislation and case law governing redundancy and TUPE (business transfers) is complex and continues to evolve.
