Liddell's Coaches v (1) Cook (2) Gold (3) Abbey Coaches Ltd - TUPE, SPC, single events and tasks of short-term duration [2012] EAT

There will not be a TUPE transfer under the Service Provision Change where the service is either "a single event" (even if activities connected to it are long-term) or else a "task of short-term duration"

Messrs Cook & Gold were coach drivers for Liddell's. In 2010 Liddell's won 5 one-year contracts to drive children who were "decanted" from their school while it was repaired (it had been built over a mine-shaft). School driving contracts would normally be for 3 to 5 years - this was for an exceptional situation. In 2011 Liddell's only secured 1 such contract, and Abbey secured 3 - they would not, in any event, be extended into 2013.
