BR-109766-XA (April 14, 2010) – Since a predecessor car dealership was divided up, with the Chevrolet assets transferring to GMAC before its Kia assets transferred to the employer, this was only a partial transfer under G.L. c. 151A, sec. 14N(a). Although predecessor owner did not participate in the successor’s business, it is deemed to be a transfer of common management or control under G.L. c. 151A, sec. 14N(k)(2), because ownership transferred from son to father, and both had similar authority for operating their respective businesses.
