Anderson v Dalkeith Engineering Ltd: EAT 1985

The tribunal outlined the correct approach to article 8 of the regulations: ‘Regulation 8, however, is of significance in the present case. Regulation 8(1) provides for the case where an employee either of the transferor or the transferee is dismissed, whether before or after the date of transfer. If the reason or principal reason for the dismissal is the transfer or a reason connected with it the dismissal is deemed to be automatically unfair. Prima facie the applicants fall within this provision. It is necessary, however, to consider the terms of regulation 8(2).’
