Key2Law (Surrey) LLP v De'Antiquis [2012] IRLR 212 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • TUPE: Administration never analogous to bankruptcy

    26 June 2012

    In Key2Law (Surrey) LLP v De'Antiquis [2012] IRLR 212 CA, the Court of Appeal held that administration proceedings can never be said to be instituted with a view to the liquidation of the assets of the insolvent business. Consequently, whenever a TUPE transfer of a business in administration occurs, reg.8(7) of the TUPE Regulations 2006 will not apply and any liabilities will transfer to the purchaser of the business.

  • No TUPE exemption for transfers from companies in administration

    9 January 2012

    The Court of Appeal has held that the transfer from a company in administration does not lead to an exemption from automatic employee transfer under reg.8(7) of TUPE.
