About Transfers and Dismissals

The 2002 amendments to the Labour Relations Act introduced a new form of automatically unfair dismissal if the reason for the dismissal is a transfer from one employer to another, or if the reason for the dismissal relates to the transfer. The question arose as to when section 197 of the LRA comes into play. Section 197 is triggered only once the new employer takes control of the business.
