Contracts: Agreement on crew numbers not incorporated into employees' contracts
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Malone and others v British Airways plc  IRLR 431 HC (2 other reports)
In Malone and others v British Airways plc  IRLR 431 HC, the High Court held that the provisions of a collective agreement purporting to set "minimum" cabin crew numbers for different routes and types of craft were not incorporated into individual employees' contracts of employment. In any event, an injunction would not be granted to restrain the employer from reducing cabin crew numbers below the levels specified, and, even if there had been a breach of contract, any award for damages would be for a nominal amount only.
