Hi all,

Not sure if this is the right place, and I know this is probably a question for the an employment solicitor, but was hoping to get clarification from my HR brethren first.

I have just accepted a job as a HR Manager for an international company but the new UK office operation isn't ready just yet. So they have asked me to sign a contract with parent company and then transfer/re-sign a contract with the subsidiary. 

Has anyone had any experience of this as either an employee or employer? If yes, what should I look out for or advise the new company? Any risks associated with this? I called ACAS and they weren't helpful in this matter.
