10 June 2019 TUPE Regulations

In the case of Hare Wines v Kaur,  the Court of Appeal determined that an employee had been automatically unfairly dismissed because of the impending TUPE transfer because she had a difficult relationship with someone who was to become the director of the company she was transferring to. 

This, however, was sufficient for the Court of Appeal to lend sufficient weight to the fact that it was actually the impending transfer of the employee’s employment rather than the difficult relationship as anticipated and so she succeeded in her claim.
