This timely new text examines the various employment law issues arising in relation to business reorganisations. Providing guidance on the most difficult practical issues of this complex area, the book is aimed primarily at practitioners working in this area. However, its accessible styleensures wider appeal to non-specialists. The book focuses on the rights and obligations of an employer towards its employees and their representatives when it seeks to reorganise its business. This can include situations where an employer wishes to contract out certain operations (and relevantemployees may be transferred to another employer) or where affected employees are retained but reallocated to different jobs and responsibilities.Fully up to date to incorporate the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006, the book details the circumstances where the regulations apply and where they do not, and the full implications to employers in each case. Clearly structured to ensure ease of reference, thebook provides separate coverage of collective and individual employment rights and detailed analysis of key issues such as obligations in respect of pension schemes, the definition of redundancy and the right to a redundancy payment, as well as the circumstances where there is no redundancy butwhere an employee may be fairly dismissed in a reorganisation for "some other substantial reason". The book also deals with the manner in which employees' common law rights may be breached and the possible impact of the law of discrimination on a reorganisation. Full attention is given to theunderlying UK and European statutory framework and the developing case law in this area.
