Abstract [en]

The EC Transfer of Undertakings Directive (2001/23/EC) aims to protect the position of employees in the case of a transfer of undertaking. This paper discusses the way in which the Directive is to be applied to cross-border transfers of undertakings. The analysis indicates that, in principle, the Directive is applicable to such transfers. Since the Directive must be implemented under national law, this involves different national rules for transfers of undertakings, even if they are harmonised to some extent. As a result, one key issue concerns which country’s law is to apply and which country’s courts have jurisdiction to hear disputes arising from cross-border transfers.
