The majority of staff at Morisons are having their employment transferred: Blackadders Solicitors have agreed to take over the Glasgow operations and Thorntons will take over the Edinburgh side of the business.
The movement of former Morisons’ staff to their new employers will, of course, be governed by the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006. This means that the employees in question will have their employment and their core terms and conditions of employment protected by their new employers.
The prospect of staff being made for redundant, as a result of the collapse of Morisons, is not imminent for the time being.
