Throughout the world the law about training is universal.If the sale is an asset sale there is no training contusinessingency in place.If this is a franchise a schooling is required. But if this is a mom and pop
type business minimum two weeks training is required and is free of cost to buyer. However if the buyer is new to the business and also has less self confidence he can request the seller to stay for 2 weeks more on a negotiable salary. If this is a large corporation and staff is coming with it then the buyer doesn't need any specific training as the employees are coming with it. However for policy making issues some training is required depending upon size of business .

Hi Jen, the training isn't mandatory unless you negotiate it is advance. Franchises usually insist that you get training so you have a better chance of success in the business. The best thing in the restaurant business is to work at one for long enough to learn the in's and out's of what you need to do to have a chance of succeeding. At Edgemaster Mobile Sharpening, we insist that the new "zee" spend enough time to convince us that they are ready to operate their own business.
