Transfer Of Employee Agreement

A 1999 agreement between AFC and STEC provides further examples of these clauses. These companies extended their initial personnel transfer contract because STEC wanted to keep the Deputy Managing Director for three months to ensure a smooth management change. The training of his successor is part of the duties of this manager. Under an employee transfer contract, an employer may have its employees work for another company. The worker must give explicit or implicit content, and the original employer (we call it Employer A) must fulfill its obligations to the worker. With the employee`s agreement, these transfers are lawful. Remember that an employee must consent to the transmission, either explicitly or implicitly. (If a worker simply works for Employer B, his actions involve consent to the transfer.) Your labour rights could be protected if you participate in a transfer or takeover. You may also have rights if your current or future employer wishes to change your employment contract due to the transfer. For example, if your new employer has to close part of a business because it is not active and therefore has no business requirements for employees with your expertise, you are entitled to the same redundancy rights as any other employee.

TUPE guarantees are available to prevent you from benefiting from less favourable terms of employment during the transfer. This means that not only will your existing business conditions be transferred to the new employer on the first working day, but you should not lose your labour rights either. The employer who transfers you to a new employer (the so-called “ceding employer”) must provide your new employer with information about the employees who transfer them, including: your employer cannot choose you for dismissal simply because you have been in the business. If your employer has applied fair and objective selection criteria for redundancies and you are selected for dismissal, that would be fair. The rights of the company (also known as occupational pensions) acquired up to the date of a transfer are protected in the event of transfer or assumption. This information must be provided at least two weeks before the end of the transfer. It should help your new employer understand your rights, your duties and duties, to prepare you for your arrival. There is no transfer until the section 13 personnel transfer contract is signed. [1] There is no legal definition of the term “affected” and the determination of the relevant fact and circumstances and the applicable jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice will determine whether a worker is assigned to the company (or a party).

Companies should take the time to clearly define when and how staff contracts are handled during a transfer. The mode of transition of workers to their new business and the resulting distribution of debt should be explicitly defined in an agreement between the seller and the buyer. Your employer cannot enforce new terms and conditions without the consent of employees.
