Currently looking at purchasing a business where 4 staff members will be transferred over to the new business. The business will be changing from a sandwich shop to a specialist coffee house. I will not be be selling sandwiches but be selling specialist coffee. I will be employing trained baristas to make and sell the coffee's. The 4 tupe staff will be superfluous to requirement. What's the procedure for removing them from the business? Do i have to make them redundant? Possibly i could arrange with the vendor to make them redundant before i take on the business. Other ways? I'm very green in this area and so any advise would be more than welcomed.
