Employees’ Rights in Case of a Transfer of Undertaking
Employees’ rights and obligations are subrogated to the new shareholder and remain intact. This includes special benefits and retirement compensation that employees may be entitled to.
Requirements for Predecessor and Successor Parties
The Workers’ Statute requires formal notice to employees in the event of transfer of undertakings, including date or proposed date of the transfer, reasons for the transfer, legal, economic and social implications for the employees, and any measures envisaged in relation to the employees. Employment contracts are automatically transferred with the business to the new employer. Employees’ rights and obligations are also transferred.
