In Courtaulds Northern Spinning Ltd v Sibson the Court of Appeal considers whether the transfer of an employee, a heavy goods vehicle driver, from one depot to a depot one mile away breached the employee's contract of employment. It concludes that there was an implied term that the employee could be transferred anywhere within reasonable commuting distance of his home.
