Morning all,

Just a quick one. We are shortly to take advantage of a break in our lease to vacate our existing cafe business.

I won’t bore you all with the details but we operate within another business and it hasn’t been as independent as we were promised.

Anyway, that’s decided so regretfully we’re off.

However I do have a handful of staff who will understandably be worried.

The business we are in needs a catering outlet so they will either find new tennants or most likely run it themselves. It will likely re open within a day or 2 of us departing.

Am I correct in assuming that although they are not purchasing our business, TUPE will apply and the new operators will have an obligation to keep the staff?

Thank you,
ec84

It sounds very much like it.
