ABSTRACT
The article discusses a court case which deals with the application of transfer protection for employees in Great Britain. In the case, the holding company of the printing firm that an employee worked for was taken over by Norwich Union, which then sold the firm to another printing company through a share sale deal. Even though strictly transfer protection does not apply to a share sale, the employee was assured his employment had continued under transfer protection regulations.
