The automatic transfer of employees in asset acquisitions and outsourcings can be a source of much deliberation – and often frustration – for businesses.  Who does (and does not) transfer, and what protections transferring employees enjoy post-transfer, are issues which can easily trip up the unwary. Our webinar will look at some of the key European Court of Justice caselaw on the Acquired Rights Directive and the local implementing legislation in two jurisdictions: the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 in the UK and Sec. 613 a Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch) in Germany. We will highlight key areas of similarity and difference and also provide practical and deal-centred advice on how to deal with the common problems which are likely to arise. Whether you are an employment lawyer, HR director or deal maker, this webinar will help you navigate the complexities of employee transfers.
