Whitewater Leisure Management Ltd v Barnes  4 WLUK 543 is an Employment Law case concerning the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment).
Whitewater Leisure Management Ltd (W) received a management contract. The contract was to run a leisure centre. Moreover, the leisure centre was owned by the local authority (X). However, the contract expired. Therefore, Barnes (B) and the other employees of W became redundant. However, B and the other employees argued that an undertaking had been transferred.
However, was there a relevant transfer of undertaking under regulation 3 of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 1981? Also, was there an economic entity?
No. However, W appealed against this decision. W asserted that the tribunal did not consider whether a separate economic entity existed. Nevertheless, in Whitewater Leisure Management Ltd v Barnes, W’s appeal failed.
