UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Thank you for getting back to me.
Can you please clarify something.
When the new company launched in October did that cancel out the old contract (even though it wasnt signed?)
Hi there it depends on how your employment was transferred over. If the company was dissolved then usually that'll result in all contracts that it issued 'dying' with it. However if it was purchased by another company then it could be that a regulation known as Tupe would apply which transferred your old contract over. Just because you didn't sign the contract doesn't mean it wasn't valid though and if you'd worked under its terms then it could be implied you had accepted it. Whatever happens the NDA can't be forced on you
The company wasnt bought by another, the owner simply dissolved the previous and reopened in another name. As he didnt issue a contract in the new name does that mean the previous contract died with the company and as no new ones were issued just standard employment rights apply?
Thank you for your help.
Thank you so much, that's a huge help.
Have a good evening.
