Buckland v Bournemouth University Higher Education Corporation [2010] IRLR 445 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Constructive dismissal: Repudiatory breach cannot be "cured" to prevent constructive dismissal claim

    Date:
    5 May 2010

    In Buckland v Bournemouth University Higher Education Corporation [2010] EWCA Civ 121 CA, the Court of Appeal held that the "range of reasonable responses" test has no place in a tribunal's determination of whether or not there was a repudiatory breach of contract by the employer and constructive dismissal. It also held that such a breach cannot be "cured", so as to prevent the innocent party accepting the breach.

  • Buckland v Bournemouth University Higher Education Corporation

    Date:
    4 March 2010

    The Court of Appeal has held that the “range of reasonable responses” test is not appropriate for deciding whether or not there has been a repudiatory breach of contract in constructive dismissal cases and an employer cannot cure a repudiatory breach of contract before an employee decides to resign.
