Court of Appeal of Thessaloniki – Case Number 1645/2015

Transfer of a business segment. Labor rights.

Conceptual elements of the business transfer. Consideration that the lease of an establishment does not constitute a transfer of a business but a form of commercial cooperation. Dismisses the appeal.
