Corporate Acquisitions: Employment Insights - Episode 2

Following on from the last episode, Katie Harris and Natalie Wood, will guide you through employment issues that come into play with corporate acquisitions. By the end of our conversation, you'll grasp the critical differences between share and asset purchases—imagine a box of biscuits, where buying shares means taking the whole box, liabilities and all, while asset purchases let you pick just the biscuits you want. 

They'll deep dive into the world of employment due diligence within mergers and acquisitions, where the age-old 'caveat emptor' adage truly comes to life. You'll come away with a clear understanding of the comprehensive nature of due diligence in share sales, versus the targeted scope in asset sales. They also demystify the implications of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations—TUPE for short—and its role in safeguarding employee transfers. 

This episode is a must-listen for anyone keen on mastering the art of navigating employment intricacies in corporate acquisitions.
