Unfair dismissal claim. Employee only having sufficient continuity of employment if she could establish an earlier TUPE transfer.
Service provision case. Employee in an organised grouping of which she was the only member. Issue whether carrying out the transferred activities was the ‘principal purpose’ of the grouping and whether the employee had been ‘assigned’ to that group.
