Beckmann v Dynamco Whicheloe Macfarlane Ltd  IRLR 578 ECJ (6 other reports)
The question of whether an employee may retain pension rights when an undertaking is transferred has caused great controversy in recent years, and has resulted in more than one referral to the European Court of Justice (ECJ). A decision has now been given in Beckmann v Dynamco Whicheloe Macfarlane Ltd (Case C-164/00). Although some issues concerning the transfer of pension rights are left unresolved, the ECJ's determination may have a far-reaching impact on employers and employees alike.
