Insolvency: Mistaken belief in transfer did not excuse late redundancy claim
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Crawford v (1) Secretary of State for Employment and (2) Colmore Depot  IRLR 523 EAT (0 other reports)
In Crawford v Secretary of State for Employment and another  IRLR 523 the EAT upholds an industrial tribunal's decision that an employee of an insolvent company was time-barred from claiming a redundancy payment from the Secretary of State. The reason for the lateness of the employee's claim was his mistaken belief that there had been a "relevant transfer" between his insolvent original employer and his new employer, within the meaning of the Transfer of Undertakings Regulations, and so his continuity of employment had been preserved.
