PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) partners Michael Horrocks and Craig Livsey shocked commentators last Friday when they used text messages to fire employees of defunct no win no fee personal injury claims business The Accident Group (TAG). TAGs administrator PwC, which is advised by DLA Manchester partner Peter Somekh, sent further messages informing employees that they would not receive Mays salary. TAGs founder and former chairman Mark Langford criticised PwC, but the administrator publicly defended its decision to use text messages. Somekh, who did not advise PwC on the text message issue, said: "Texting was the only means of communicating with significant numbers of the workforce. Those employees PwC could speak to personally, it did."
