Besagni and other v RR Donnelley Global Document Solutions Group Ltd

Employment – Unfair dismissal. The employees worked in the parking enforcement services of a local authority. The authority out-sourced most of its parking operations and the employees were required to relocate. They were dismissed after their refusal to do so. The employment tribunal held that their dismissal was automatically unfair and that the transfer did not entail 'changes in the workforce' so as to bring them within the scope of reg 7(2) of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006, SI 2006/246 (TUPE). The Employment Appeal Tribunal, dismissing the appellants' appeals, held that the tribunal had not erred in its interpretation of reg 7(2) of TUPE.
