    Institute of the Motor Industry v Harley 14 January 1992 EAT (0 other reports)

In Institute of the Motor Industry v Harley (14 January 1992) EOR44E, the EAT emphasises that the employer's obligations to permit an employee on maternity leave to return to work are not triggered unless and until the employee complies with the statutory obligation to notify her date of return. However, the EAT leaves the door open for a claim of ordinary constructive dismissal by an employee who resigned during maternity leave and did not notify her date of return.
