The article presents information on various legal cases. The Court of Appeal has cleared the Royal Mail Group Ltd of any violations of the Transfer of Undertakings Regulation (Tupe). Both the Court of Appeal and the Employee Appeals Tribunal (EAT) agree with car valets of Autoclenz who claimed they are employees and therefore entitled to paid holiday and the minimum wage. The EAT upheld the validity of the redundancy scheme of Imperial Chemical Industry which pays more to employees with at least 10 years of service and aged 50 and up.
