Ed Williams and Catriona Stirling seek reference to CJEU in key TUPE case


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.
