Hi all, Looking for some HR / Legal advise... I am thinking of buying an e-commerce business that is being marketed as a going concern but relocatable. The company currently employees 4 people, i would imagine they have been there for sometime, maybe 5 years or more. however, if we do proceed to purchase, we would be looking to relocate the business some 150 miles from its current location. In our initial assessment, the business is well overmanned and only requires 2 people at most. What is the legal position on this? do we have to transfer the employees as part of the sale or can we build it in to the purchase agreement that we don't transfer employees? Can we request the current owner make them redundant/lay them off with a months notice before the sale is complete? The long a short of it is, we want to buy the business, move its location and not have to worry about the current employees... a little harsh i know, but this is business after all.
