    Date:
    15 February 2000

    An employee's common law right to claim for wrongful constructive dismissal, based on substantial and detrimental changes in his working conditions that he alleges would take place on the transfer of the undertaking in which he works, lies against the transferor employer, not the transferee, holds the Court of Appeal in University of Oxford v (1) Humphreys (2) The Associated Examining Board.
