    Stirling District Council v Allan and others [1995] IRLR 301 CS (0 other reports)

In Stirling District Council v Allan and others, the Court of Session overturns a controversial EAT ruling that the transferor and transferee are jointly liable under the Transfer of Undertakings Regulations for transfer-related unfair dismissals which take place before the transfer. The Court holds that the Regulations are unambiguous in making the transferee exclusively liable for such unfair dismissals.
