In Hailstones v Staffordshire County Council, the Court of Appeal holds that it was an implied term of an employee's contract that he had a right to appeal against the imposition of a disciplinary sanction - in this case a transfer to a different workplace - as an alternative to dismissal, in view of the fact that the contract contained express rights of appeal against a decision to dismiss and against warnings imposed in accordance with the disciplinary procedure.
