(2)Where an economic, technical or organisational reason entailing changes in the workforce of either the transferor body or the common employer before or after a transfer is the reason or principal reason for dismissing an officer—

(a)sub-paragraph (1) above shall not apply to the dismissal, but

(b)without prejudice to the application of section 98(4) of the said Act of 1996 (test of fair dismissal), the dismissal shall for the purpose of section 98(1) of that Act (substantial reason for dismissal) be regarded as having been for a substantial reason of a kind such as to justify the dismissal of an officer holding the position which that officer held.
