Patisserie Valerie went into administration in January with nearly 900 staff losing their jobs as 70 cafes closed.

Redundant staff have said to the BBC that, they have not been paid for their last month’s work, they will have to apply through the government for redundancy pay, a process that can take 6-weeks.

Former staff member, Janis Asprey said on Twitter:

Brandon Dann 20, who was a chef for the company said to the BBC he contacted KPMG, “they told me straight up that Patisserie Valerie aren’t paying me. They’re not paying the staff made redundant.

“We all started freaking out a little bit, eventually I filled out my claims form through HMRC, but it takes up to six weeks to even see any money.”

A KPMG spokesperson said, “We recognise this is a very difficult time for those members of staff who have lost their jobs. We are providing them with support, including assisting with claims to the Redundancy Payments Service.”
