Your organisation has a duty to inform and consult with you or your representative (normally your trade union representative or elected representative if you are not in a union). If you don’t think you are being informed or consulted, let your employer know you need more information.
In many organisational transfers, employee’s contracts are honoured and they retain their terms and conditions from the original employer. However, sometimes you are at risk of losing your job. You would be entitled to compensation for such a dismissal, usually in the form of a redundancy payment. If you are dismissed without compensation before or after the organisation has been transferred, you may have been unfairly dismissed and have a case. Or if your terms and conditions of employment have significantly and detrimentally changed resulting in you resigning, you may have a case for constructive dismissal.
Please give us a call or use the contact form on this website to tell us about your circumstances and we may be able to support you.
