Transfer of undertakings: Cleaning operation was not a stable economic entity

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Initial Contract Services Ltd v Harrison and others 3.9.01 EAT 64/01, the EAT upholds an employment tribunal's decision that there was no stable economic entity, and hence no undertaking in existence, where a cleaning operation run by a putative transferor from 1982 until 1999 was marked by extreme fluctuations in the number of employees it employed over the years, as well as changes in the tasks carried out.
