    United Bank Ltd v Akhtar [1989] IRLR 507 EAT (0 other reports)

In United Bank Ltd v Akhtar, the EAT holds that it was necessary for certain terms to be implied into a contract of employment in order for the employee to be in a position to comply with a relocation clause. The employer was under an implied obligation to give reasonable notice of relocation, and to exercise the discretion to pay relocation allowances in such a way that a low-paid employee could move as required.
