"Employee Super-Priority Under the WEPPA and the BIA: Comments on Ted LeRoy Trucking Ltd. and 383838 B.C. Ltd."

Jurisdiction: - Canada/Federal
Sector: - Transportation

Vancouver lawyers Mary I.A. Buttery and Cindy Cheuk prepared a paper entitled "Employee Super-Priority Under the WEPPA and the BIA: Comments on Ted LeRoy Trucking Ltd. and 383838 B.C. Ltd. (Re)" for the May 29, 2009 Bankruptcy and Insolvency CLE.

The paper sets out the implications of the 2008 Wage Earner Protection Program Act "on insolvency practice and provides a brief analysis of Ted LeRoy Trucking Ltd. and 383838 B.C. Ltd. (Re), 2009 BCSC 41, the only reported decision regarding the WEPPA (as at the date of this paper) since the legislation came into force."

(Update: the BC Court of Appeal upheld the trial judge's decision in 2010 BCCA 223).
