Shared services, 'pre-existence' and the case of Lorenzo Amatori

21 September 2014

Review of a recent European Court case concerning the rights of employees in employers' shared services arrangements.

In an article by Dr John McMullen of Wrigleys and Caterina Rucci of Bird & Bird in Milan, the authors consider the case of Amatori & ors v Telecom Italia SpA Shared Service Center Srl Case C-458/12

The case looks at whether, and in what circumstances, the employees' transfer to a third-party shared services vehicle is protected by the EU Acquired Rights Directive 2001/23 and hence the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006.
