On 6 May 2020, the Court of Appeal handed down judgment in the case of Re Debenhams Retail Ltd.

As in the Carluccio’s case, discussed here, the appeal considered the relationship between the  Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (the Scheme) and the adoption of employment contracts by administrators under the Insolvency Act 1986 (the Act). 

The Edwin Coe Business Protection Team have taken a look at this recent decision in more detail.
