ECJ interpreted the directive on transfer of undertakings

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) confirmed recently that in case of transfers of undertakings based on the Council Directive 2001/23/EC, the transferee must, when dismissing an employee more than one year after the transfer of the undertaking, include, in the calculation of that employee’s length of service, which is relevant for determining the period of notice to which that employee is entitled, the length of service which that employee acquired with the transferor (C‑336/15).
