Reports relating to this case:

  • TUPE: avoiding liquidation can constitute an ETO reason, confirms Court of Appeal

    20 November 2013

    The Court of Appeal has held that, where the reason for a TUPE-related dismissal is to continue running a business and to avoid liquidation, this can constitute an economical, technical or organisational (ETO) reason entailing changes in the workforce, meaning that such a dismissal is not automatically unfair.
