London Borough of Hillingdon v Gormanley and others

Employment – Dismissal. In proceedings relating to alleged unfair dismissal, the question arose of whether the employees had been assigned to an organised grouping of employees within the meaning of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 SI 2006/246. The Employment Appeal Tribunal held that, among other things, the judge had failed to consider the organisational structure of the putative transferor and the role of the claimants.
