The case 'Beckmann v. Dynamco Whicheloe MacFarlane,' which is related to the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE) of Great Britain is the main focus of this article. The government has been committed to amending the regulations and in 2001 published a consultation paper on how to bring occupational pensions under TUPE. At the time of the writing of this article, no legislative decisions have yet been taken by the government but, to an extent, any legislative proposals have been overtaken by events and, in particular, by the European Court of Justice decision on the said case. The decision has called into question the extent to which benefits under an occupational pension scheme are exempt, or excepted, from the TUPE regulations.
