Employment Partner at BLM Julian Cox speaks to BBC Online about Pizza Express redundancies

The BBC quotes Julian Cox, Head of Employment Law, London at BLM on news that Pizza Express is considering closing 67 of its UK restaurants, which would mean the loss of 1,100 jobs:

"Pizza Express is yet another household name that has been pushed to the brink by Covid-19.

"Whilst the government has attempted to encourage people through the doors with 'Eat Out to Help Out', the initiative is clearly not going to be enough to protect the sector in the long term."
