Crest Packaging Ltd & other Crest companies v Bell, Breaker, Ingram, Packham, Parry, and Stevens - Test case: Identity of Employer  website
267 claimants brought various claims following collapse of the Crest group in 2003 by reason of its insolvency, including claims for outstanding wages and for unfair and wrongful dismissal. A preliminary hearing decided that Crest Packaging Ltd, the group parent company, was the employer. Crest appealed. The EAT allowed the appeal (but failed to decide which company or companies was/were the employer, remitting that question back to yet another tribunal).
