Kimberley Group Housing Ltd v Hambley and others (UK) Ltd: EAT 25 Apr 2008

EAT TRANSFER OF UNDERTAKINGS
The principles and approach which a Tribunal should take where there has been a transfer of one service provider’s activities to two or more transferees, and there is disagreement as to whether an employee’s contract is now to be with the transferor or any of the transferees, considered. The Tribunal had decided that where employees were dismissed, it was permissible to decide that the rights and obligations under this contract should be apportioned on a percentage basis between transferees. This was held an error. The Tribunal should have applied the approach in Botzen, adopted where there was a transfer of an undertaking under the 1981 Regulations, to a change of service provider under the 2006 Regulations.
