Employment and Labour Law in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Malik and Mahmud v Bank of Credit and Commerce International SA
    • House of Lords
    • 12 Junio 1997

    The trust and confidence required in the employment relationship can be undermined by an employer, or indeed an employee, in many different ways. The conduct must, of course, impinge on the relationship in the sense that, looked at objectively, it is likely to destroy or seriously damage the degree of trust and confidence the employee is reasonably entitled to have in his employer.

  • Moeliker v A. Reyrolle & Company Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 30 Enero 1976

    This head of damage only arises where a plaintiff is at the time of the trial in employment, but there is a risk that he may lose this employment at some time In the future, and may then, as a result of his Injury, be at a disadvantage in getting another job or an equally well paid job.It is a different head of damages from an actual lose of future earnings which can already be proved at the time of the trial.

  • Shamoon v Chief Constable of the Royal Ulster Constabulary
    • House of Lords
    • 27 Febrero 2003

    This analysis seems to me to point to the conclusion that employment tribunals may sometimes be able to avoid arid and confusing disputes about the identification of the appropriate comparator by concentrating primarily on why the claimant was treated as she was. Was it on the proscribed ground which is the foundation of the application? That will call for an examination of all the facts of the case.

  • British Transport Commission v Gourley
    • House of Lords
    • 08 Diciembre 1955

    In an action for personal injuries the damages are always divided into two main parts. First, there is what is referred to as special damage which has to be specially pleaded and proved. This consists of out-of-pocket expenses and loss of earnings incurred down to the date of trial, and is generally capable of substantially exact calculation. Secondly, there is general damage which the law implies and is not specially pleaded.

  • Locobail (U.K.) Ltd v Bayfield Properties Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 17 Noviembre 1999

    By contrast, a real danger of bias might well be thought to arise if there were personal friendship or animosity between the judge and any member of the public involved in the case; or if the judge were closely acquainted with any member of the public involved in the case, particularly if the credibility of that individual could be significant in the decision of the case; or if, in a case where the credibility of any individual were an issue to be decided by the judge, he had in a previous case rejected the evidence of that person in such outspoken terms as to throw doubt on his ability to approach such person's evidence with an open mind on any later occasion; or if on any question at issue in the proceedings before him the judge had expressed views, particularly in the course of the hearing, in such extreme and unbalanced terms as to throw doubt on his ability to try the issue with an objective judicial mind (see Vakauta v. Kelly (1989) 167 CLR 568); or if, for any other reason, there were real ground for doubting the ability of the judge to ignore extraneous considerations, prejudices and predilections and bring an objective judgment to bear on the issues before him.

  • Walls Meat Company Ltd v Khan
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 24 Octubre 1978

    It is simply to ask this question: Had the man just cause or excuse for not presenting his complaint within the prescribed time? Ignorance of his rights - or ignorance of the time limit - is not just cause or excuse, unless it appears that he or his advisers could not reasonably be expected to have been aware of them. If he or his advisers could reasonably have been so expected, it was his or their fault, and he must take the consequences.

  • Abernethy v Mott, Hay and Anderson
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 06 Febrero 1974

    A reason for the dismissal of an employee is a set of facts known to the employer, or it may be of beliefs held by him, which cause him to dismiss the employee. If at the time of his dismissal the employer gives a reason for it, that is no doubt evidence, at any rate, as against him, as to the real reason, but it does notnecessarily constitute the real reason.
