If a transfer of a business takes place,

a) the new employer is automatically substituted in the place of the old employer
in respect of all contracts of employment in existence immediately before the
date of transfer;
b) all the rights and obligations between the old employer and an employee at
the time of the transfer continue in force as if they had been rights and
obligations between the new employer and the employee.

Once such a transfer of business occurs, the new employer becomes the employer of the transferred employees, and that, subject to the new employer’s right to effect minor amendments, the employees terms and conditions of employment remain unchanged.
