Constructive dismissal: Alleged pay rise promised at Christmas party not enforceable
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Judge v Crown Leisure Ltd  All ER (D) 293 (Nov) EAT (1 other report)
In Judge v Crown Leisure Ltd, the EAT holds:
- The tribunal did not err in law in deciding, as a matter of factual analysis, that a conversation between the applicant and his manager at a staff Christmas party did not amount to an enforceable promise to increase his pay, but were merely words of comfort.
- There was no fundamental breach of a contractual obligation, entitling the applicant to resign, arising out of the failure to increase the applicant's salary on the basis of what was allegedly agreed at the Christmas party.
