Leading Cases
  • Hochstrasser (Inspector of Taxes) v Mayes
    • House of Lords
    • 30 November 1959

    It is contained in the statutory requirement that the payment, if it is to be the subject of assessment, must arise "from" the office or employment. For my part I think that their meaning is adequately conveyed by saying that, while it is not sufficient to render a payment assessable that an employee would not have received it unless he had been an employee, it is assessable if it has been paid to him in return for acting as or being an employee.

  • Lavarack v Woods of Colchester Ltd
    • Court of Appeal
    • 19 July 1966

    I know of no principle upon which he can claim as damages for breach of one service agreement compensation for remuneration which might have become due under some imaginary future agreement which the plaintiffs did not make with him but might have done if they wished.

  • Parry v Cleaver
    • House of Lords
    • 05 February 1969

    It is generally recognised that pensionable employment is more valuable to a man than the mere amount of his weekly wage. It is more valuable because by reason of the terms of his employment money is being regularly set aside to swell his ultimate pension rights whether on retirement or on disablement. The products of the sums paid into the pension fund are in fact delayed remuneration for his current work.

  • Cantor Fitzgerald International v Callaghan
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 21 January 1999

    In my judgment the question whether non payment of agreed wages, or interference by an employer with a salary package, is or is not fundamental to the continued existence of a contract of employment, depends on the critical distinction to be drawn between an employer's failure to pay, or delay in paying, agreed remuneration, and his deliberate refusal to do so.

  • McLaughlin v Governor of the Cayman Islands
    • Privy Council
    • 23 July 2007

    It is a settled principle of law that if a public authority purports to dismiss the holder of a public office in excess of its powers, or in breach of natural justice, or unlawfully (categories which overlap), the dismissal is, as between the public authority and the office-holder, null, void and without legal effect, at any rate once a court of competent jurisdiction so declares or orders.

  • Lewis v Motorworld Garages Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 01 August 1985

    (c) The breach of this implied obligation of trust and confidence may consist of a series of actions on the part of the employer which cumulatively amount to a breach of the term, though each individual incident may not do so. In particular in such a case the last action of the employer which leads to the employee leaving need not itself be a breach of contract; the question is, does the cumulative series of acts taken together amount to a breach of the implied term?

  • Shields v E. Coomes (Holdings) Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 27 April 1978

    work or for work to which equal value is attributed, the elimination of all discrimination on grounds of sex with regard to all aspects and conditions of remuneration. In particular, when a job classification system is used for determining pay, it must be based on the same criteria for both men and women, and so drawn up as to exclude any discrimination of the ground of sex."
