Computershare Investor Services Plc. v Jackson - TUPE cannot create rights post-transfer which were not there pre-transfer  EAT
Mrs Jackson was a senior Manager who worked since 1999 for a company 50% owned by one of the parent companies in the Computershare Group. In 2004, as a result of a TUPE transfer, her employment transferred to the parent company. This latter company provided employees with enhanced redundancy payments in the event of their being made redundant, the value depending on whether the employee concerned joined the company before or or after 1st March 2002 (it was greater for those who joined before that date). Mrs Jackson was dismissed by reason of redundancy in 2005.
