Key2Law (Surrey) LLP v De' Antiquis - transfer by administrator is not excluded from effect of TUPE

The appointment of an administrator is always, at the time of appointment, primarily for the purpose of rescuing the company - whether or not that proves possible. The administration is therefore not analogous to insolvency proceedings, and a transfer of the business by the administrator will never fall under TUPE Reg 8(7) - therefore a TUPE transfer of liabilities will take place. This "absolute approach" should be followed instead of the "fact-based approach" previously advocated in Oakland v Wellswood.
