What do you mean "especially when you transferred to an outsource?"
In terms of section 197 of the LRA, when a business is sold from A to B, it is a requirement that all of the employees are moved from A's employment to B's employment in a single transaction. There must be no "break" in service. The employment simply continues.
The employees don't have any right to be involved in the process since they are moving "with" the business. The only change is the employer.
Pretend I have my own shop like Pick 'n Pay, and I have a whole host of employees. If I sell my shop to Woolworths (for example) then all of those employees would simply become Woolworths employees.
Awaiting your further information.
