Nabbumba v Merton Priory Holmes: EAT 7 Aug 2013

EAT Transfer of Undertakings – UNFAIR DISMISSAL – Reason for dismissal including substantial other reason – TUPE transfer; dismissal one year later. The Employment Tribunal erred in failing to identify the reason or principal reason for the dismissal and gave no reasons for rejecting the Claimant’s case that this was a TUPE Regulation 7(1)(a) rather than a TUPE Regulation 7(1)(b) case. The decision was therefore not Meek compliant. Case remitted to same ET to make relevant findings.
