Transfer of property, rights, liabilities and obligations

3.  (1)  All property, rights, liabilities and obligations of the Banff and Buchan Board are transferred to and vested in the Aberdeen Board.

(2) Any reference to Banff and Buchan or the Banff and Buchan Board in any instrument is to be construed as a reference to either Aberdeen or the Aberdeen Board as may be appropriate.

(3) Any action or proceeding by or against the Banff and Buchan Board pending or current, immediately before this Order comes into force, may be continued by or against the Aberdeen Board.

(4) For the purposes of this article, “instrument” does not include enactment.

Property provided with grand aid

4.  Where the Grant-aided Colleges (Scotland) Grant Regulations 1989(4) applied to the Banff and Buchan Board in respect of any land or buildings immediately before they were transferred by this Order, those Regulations apply to the Aberdeen Board in respect of such land and buildings.

Transfer of staff

5.  (1)  All employees of the Banff and Buchan Board are transferred to the Aberdeen Board and the contract of employment of each such employee has effect as if originally made between each such employee and the Aberdeen Board.

(2) In particular—

(a)all the rights, powers, duties and liabilities of the Banff and Buchan Board under or in connection with a contract to which paragraph (1) applies are, by virtue of this paragraph, transferred to the Aberdeen Board; and

(b)anything done before the transfer referred to in paragraph (1) by or in relation to Banff and Buchan Board in respect of that contract or the employee is deemed, on and after that transfer, to have been done by or in relation to the Aberdeen Board.

(3) Paragraphs (1) and (2) are without prejudice to any right of an employee to terminate their contract of employment if the terms and conditions of employment are changed substantially to the detriment of that employee, but such change is not to be taken to have occurred by reason only of the fact that the employer under that employee’s contract of employment is changed by virtue of this article.

(4) Paragraphs (1) and (2) apply to a person who has entered into a contract of employment with the Banff and Buchan Board, which is to come into effect after the coming into force of this article and who would, if the contract had come into effect before that date, have been an employee to whom those paragraphs would have applied.

Closure of institution

6.  Banff and Buchan is closed and the Banff and Buchan Board is wound up and dissolved.
