Transfer of undertaking

A takeover of (part of) a company can in some circumstances lead to what is legally defined as a so-called transfer of undertaking. If that is the case, there are far-reaching consequences to it: the employees, by operation of law, enter the service of the acquiring party and retain all rights and obligations. In practice, it is often unclear whether a takeover (or, for example, subcontracting) leads to a transfer of undertaking. Aside from that, there is often the question which employees will be transferred to the acquirer when there is a transfer of undertaking. Finally, discussions may arise on the subject of the extent to which the transferred employees can (continue to) claim their old employment conditions. BASE Advocaten can advise you in these matters and, if necessary, provide legal assistance in disputes regarding a transfer of undertaking.
