Good day

My employer is in the process of selling his business.  He is only selling the rooms but not his practise.  He can't give me an indication of how long this process will take and when the D-Day will be.  The one minute we are closing down and the following minute we are still going on.  Nothing was put down in writing and it is very unsure of what is going to happen with me.  I have been in his employment for 17 months.  What is my rights?

Hi there,

I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.

If he is selling his business, the Labour Relations Act says that all staff members will go with the business. i.e. all staff will then become staff of the new owner of the business, and will continue working for the business.
