This report relates to 1 case(s)
Fairhurst Ward Abbotts Ltd v Botes Building Ltd and others  All ER (D) 418 (Mar) EAT (0 other reports)
In Fairhurst Ward Abbots Ltd v (1) Botes Building Ltd; (2) Mr K Vaughan and others EAT/1007/00, the EAT holds that a contract to provide building services, which was split up and put out to tender as two separate contracts when it was due to be renewed, became two separate economic entities capable of transfer under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 1981. In all such cases, it will be a question of fact for the employment tribunal to decide whether each part is an entity which had retained its identity.
