Pellowe v Pendragon plc EAT/804/98

Reports relating to this case:

  • Contracts of employment: No implied entitlement to enhanced redundancy payment

    1 February 2000

    An employer who made automatic payments of enhanced redundancy compensation to dismissed employees for over 20 years, but who reserved the scale of those payments for its management manual which was not formally distributed to the workforce, did not commit itself either expressly, or impliedly by custom and practice, to any contractual obligation to make such payments, the EAT holds in Pellowe v Pendragon plc.
