I would suggest them, but you're already doing so.

I suspect that the law that may protect you is "Transfer of Undertakings"
(which I think is at least one UK law drafted to comply with EU requirements)
but even if you're able to locate the right parts of that, it may (sadly)
take a real immigration lawyer to know how it interacts with the Home
Office's rules on work permits.

In the traditional world, one would assume that a purchaser would be keen to
buy the ongoing business, and that that would include the staff. But I
guess that in the world of ISPs, the purchaser might be budgeting on
integrating and supporting the customers on their existing systems and
staff, without needing more.
