    McClory and others v The Post Office [1993] IRLR 159 HC (0 other reports)

There is no general contractual obligation on an employer to act reasonably or fairly, holds the High Court in McClory & others v The Post Office. In relation to an express power to suspend an employee, however, there is an implied term that an employer will not exercise that right on unreasonable grounds.
