HR and legal issues during employee relocation

Employees and their employers have their responsibilities as well as their obligations when their companies relocate to other locations. The employment contract of an employer also takes care of the employer's working location. Consequently, there should be a change in employment contract if there is a relocation of the working location of the employee.

Employee relocation supportIf the business location of an employer is moved, the situation of the employee depends on a number of factors. The first factor that will determine the situation of the staff is the employment contract's terms of the employee in question. Mobility clause is included in the terms of some employment contract. The mobility clause may oblige an employer to move within a stipulated limit. An employee may be compelled by such circumstances to relocate to a new area in compliance with the stipulations of the mobility clause insofar as the terms are reasonable.

The major issues that the employer should consider when moving office staff and business premises are as follows:

  • How far the new location is from the current location
  • The transportation links at the new location
  • How many members of the staffs that the move will affect
  • How many employees to be relocated that have children below the age of 16 to take care of or older children as well as vulnerable adults
  • The timescale allowed for the move and whether it is reasonable when juxtaposed with the distance to be moved
  • Give enough time for discussion on the move with the employees and giving them notice of the planned move earlier enough

The employer must take the following into consideration with regard to the terms of contracts

  • If the contract of the employment contains the mobility clause and whether it is proper to the circumstance surrounding the planned moved
  • Whether the employees have been given reasonable notice about the proposed move and whether they are adequately consulted
  • Whether the employees should be provided with employee relocation package
  • Whether they have been given some trial period at the new location
  • Whether relocations assistance to new employees is provided

Another important factor to take into consideration during workforce relocation is discrimination. Here are things to take into consideration in this regard:

  • Disabled access and transport issues should be addressed by the employer with regard to the new premises.
  • Individual employee or a particular group of employees should not be adversely affected by the relocation
  • The employer must take into consideration the reasonable requirements of any disabled workers
  • What should be done if a staff does not want to move
  • The refusal of a staff to relocate can be as a result of the following reasons:
  • The employment at the existing location does not exist any longer.
  • An alternative is offered to the employee but he or she considers the offer unsuitable and thus declines it.

There are a number of factors that will determine whether redundancy will be paid by an employer or not. Such factors include the duration the employee has worked with the employer and whether the decline of a suitable alternative offer by the staff is unreasonable which is the most important factor.

The circumstances determine the distance which is considered reasonable. Thus, reasonability in terms of distance is determined by the circumstances. For example, if the new location is within a drivable distance of few miles or if it can be accessed with public transport as well as private car, it will not be reasonable for the employee to decline the offer. On the other hand, it may be reasonable for a staff to refuse to move if the new location is very far and the journey will be difficult for the employee or the change in location affects the employee's personal life.

Redundancy is considered to be a type of dismissal and thus a staff may make claims for unfair dismissal if they are not satisfied with the treatment given to him or her.

Therefore, the employer should take the following into consideration:

  • Consider the circumstances of each individual with regard to the move
  • Provide the office staff reasons for the relocation
  • Meet and have a discussion with the employees before taking a definitive conclusion
  • If the number of employees affected by the move is up to 20, the company should elect the representatives of the staff in order to undertake collective consultation
  • If the number of office staff affected in a 90 day period is up to 20, the employer should follow detailed consultation process and procedure and then let Secretary of State know about it

Employee relocation rights

Commercial establishments and companies may have a lot of reasons for relocating their bases. Some of the reasons include acquiring a bigger business premises, reducing cost, easy access to raw material, availability inexpensive raw material, merging with another business and many more. If relocation is unavoidable, employers should ensure that they consult and communicate their plan for move to their staff as well as their representatives before taking a stand.

Employment agreementEmployees may refuse to relocate owing to a number of factors like house price, increased travel costs, age, family commitments and the likes. The biggest challenge facing an employer may be to persuade the key members of the business to move. This can be achieved in a number of ways such as provision of attractive employee relocation package, appropriate support, payment of the cost for employee relocation, making arrangement for a mortgage. Another means through which the offer can be achieved is to provide a trial relocation period during which the new location can be tried by the employees in order to become acquainted with the new location, settle down first before being able to make a decision.

The rights of the employee during relocation depends on the content of their employment contract and mainly whether there is mobility clause in it or not. An employee may be required to relocate by the mobility clause. If the contract contains such a mobility clause that requires an employee to move, the person has no choice to relocate unless such reason as financial constraints, disruption to family life and others make the move unreasonable for the employee. However, what is meant by being reasonable is not well defined. It can be subject to different interpretation. Thus, it is left for the individual employee to discuss it with his employer during the move.

As an employer, if you are moving definitely, you will be moving with employees whose contract contain mobility clause unless they are able to establish that it is unreasonable for them to move with you.

When employees should relocate?

Employees are required to move when a business relocates. In this regard, an employee should refer to its employment contract for mobility clause. Employee is required by the mobility clause to relocate within a certain limits. This implies that employees can be forced by their employers to relocate to areas allowed by the clause insofar as such a move is not reasonable.

For example, it is not reasonable trying to force an employee to relocate to another country after a day notice. Even if such a move is possible, it is quite unreasonable and will throw the employee into untold difficult situations. Such unreasonable requests can be resolved through a number of ways.

The decision to move or not to move is left completely for employees that do not have mobility clause in their contract to decide.

There are certain conditions under which an employee may be entitled to redundancy pay as a right. Below are the conditions that will be satisfied for an employee to have the right to redundancy pay.

They satisfy the redundancy requirements and criteria – for example:

  • an employer has hired them for a certain period of time.
  • The employer has refused to give them any compensation because they refuse to move.
  • Their reason for declining an offer for suitable alternative work is not unreasonable.

'Unreasonable' here may mean declining the offer to move even when the new location is within a distance that an employee can get to using a public transport or private car.

However, an employee refusal to move may be reasonable if difficult journey is involved in the move or if the move will affect the employee's private and family life like children's education.

Employers are obliged to compensate employees for relocation if it is specified in their contract but if no such provision is made, compensation is not obliged on the employer.

Disputes over relocations should be resolved by the employers and employees; for example, if the employees think that the employer is unreasonably refusing them a redundancy payment.

Employee relocation when a business is acquired by another

The rights of employees are protected by certain rules and regulations if the business employing them is sold to another by the initial employer that hired them and the new owner wants them to relocate. These regulations are called the Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment (TUPE).

All the rights of the employees including redundancy protection and contractual rights remain untouched whether the move is introduced by the new owner or the initial owner.

We are also able to offer transportation of employee belongings using different means of transportation such as air, sea and road. Each of these means of transportations are good. You can use any of them. It is your situation that will determine which option that is most suitable for you. For time sensitive delivery or urgent delivery, air transit should be the best option. But the problem with air transit is that it is more expensive than others. Not every business will be able to afford it. Road transport is cheaper and more flexible but not as fast as airport. It is the most common means of transportation, especially in case of employee relocation to Norway, Spain, Italy, France, Portugal, Denmark, Poland or other European destinations. But there is a limit to the weight and volume of items that can be transported through. It is the best option for intra state shipment or shipment within the same location. Shipment by sea is the most suitable for the shipment of bulky and weighty items or for shipment to far distant location, especially in case you are relocating employee to Canada, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Brazil or any overseas locations. It is the most affordable means of transportation but it is the slowest. It is the best option where time is not issue.
