    In Hedgecock v Commissioners for HM Revenue & Customs, the EAT holds that, where an employee was unwilling to undertake some additional reception duties and was no longer suffering from stress-related illness, there was no breach of mutual trust and confidence when her employer informed her she would still be required to carry out those extra duties.
