TUPE: Administrator did not dismiss employees to facilitate sale

In Kavanagh and others v Crystal Palace FC Ltd and another [2014] IRLR 139 CA, the Court of Appeal held that the EAT had been wrong to interfere with an employment tribunal's judgment that an administrator had dismissed employees for an "ETO" reason. On the facts, the dismissals had been effected in order to enable the company to continue to trade and avoid liquidation.
