Hazel and another v Manchester College

Employment – Dismissal. The employees were dismisses following a transfer of undertakings under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE). They brought successful claims before an employment tribunal and before the Employment Appeal Tribunal. The employer appealed on the basis that the decision to dismiss was an economic technical or organisational reason. The Court of Appeal Civil Division held that it was not an economic, technical or organisational decision within reg 7 of TUPE decision and the dismissal had been automatically unfair.
