    Quinn and others v Calder Industrial Materials Ltd [1996] IRLR 126 EAT (0 other reports)

In Quinn and others v Calder Industrial Materials Ltd [1996] IRLR 126 the EAT upholds an industrial tribunal's ruling that the employer was not in breach of contract by failing to make enhanced redundancy payments to redundant employees. Enhanced payments in accordance with a policy unilaterally drawn up by management had been made on each previous occasion when redundancy had arisen, but all the circumstances did not support the inference that this policy had achieved the status of a term incorporated by implication into employees' contracts.
