Ed Williams and Catriona Stirling will appear in the Employment Appeal Tribunal on 11 September 2015 in the case of Martlet Homes Ltd & Ors v Mr Dean Layton.

This is an important case concerning the meaning and scope of the TUPE Regulations. It will determine whether there is a transfer within the meaning of the Regulations when there are multiple transferees, which include the original transferor.

This case is likely to have far-reaching implications in areas where employees are commonly jointly and severally employed by a number of employees, such as in partnerships and in the housing association sector.
