Transfer of teachers to employment of Council

144.—(1) Subject to paragraph (2), this Article applies to any teacher employed by the Board of Governors of a school immediately before the date on which that school becomes a Catholic maintained school (in this Article referred to as “the transfer date”).

(2) This Article does not apply to a teacher whose contract of employment terminates on the day immediately preceding the transfer date.

(3) References below in this Article to the former employer in relation to a teacher are references to the Board of Governors by which that teacher was employed immediately before the transfer date.

(4) The contract of employment between a teacher to whom this Article applies and the former employer shall have effect from the transfer date as if originally made between him and the Council.

(5) Without prejudice to paragraph (4)—

(a)all the former employer’s rights, powers, duties and liabilities under or in connection with a contract to which that paragraph applies shall by virtue of this Article be transferred to the Council on the transfer date; and

(b)anything done before that date by or in relation to the former employer in respect of that contract or the teacher shall be deemed from that date to have been done by or in relation to the Council.

(6) Paragraphs (4) and (5) are without prejudice to any right of an employee to terminate his contract of employment if a substantial change is made to his detriment in his working conditions, but no such right shall arise by reason only of the change in employer effected by this Article.
