Employment Partner at BLM Julian Cox speaks to ThisIsMoney.co.uk about Pizza Express redundancies
In an article charting significant job cuts across numerous household name companies and sectors - Daily Mail sister title, thisismoney.co.uk, quoted Head of Employment Law, London, Partner Julian Cox:
"Pizza Express is yet another household name that has been pushed to the brink by COVID-19, with the hospitality sector hit particularly hard. 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. As we've seen from local infection spikes, this pandemic is far from over and further support is needed for the months ahead. Whilst the Chancellor has previously suggested that the October end date for the scheme is final, many impacted businesses will surely be asking whether this will go far enough to stave off financial ruin."
