1) Get a copy of the policy, it'll be on the internet. If the process that is in the policy hasn't been adhered to then it isn't necessarily illegal. However the reason employers have these policies is to ensure that laws aren't broken - ie the DDA,equalities etc.

I know this thread was a while ago but I've new developments that may be of interest to some. The LA had previously announced the situation as in the quote above and the staff in both merging schools have been long-prepared for imminent redundancy, together with the oncoming fight for ring-fenced, salary-lowered jobs in the new school. An interim Head was appointed and a staffing structure drawn up. However, since we're actually a VA school, as are both the school with which we're merging and the new school itself, there IS a change of employer (since in VA schools the employer is the Governing Body, not the LA) and so TUPE therefore DOES apply.
