Trustees at Work

Financial Pressures, Emotional Labour, and Canadian Bankruptcy Law

Trustees at Work explores the role of bankruptcy trustees in determining who qualifies as a deserving debtor under Canadian personal bankruptcy law. The idea of a deserving debtor is reflected in the law governing the bankruptcy and insolvency system, which seeks to provide debt relief to the deserving while withholding it from the undeserving. In practice, however, bankruptcy trustees focus largely on how cooperative debtors are during the legal process in order to determine deservingness. This book draws on interviews and statistical data to expand the research on insolvency professionals and examines the legal constraints and emotional pressures they face.
