    Westwood v Secretary of State for Employment [1984] IRLR 209 HL (0 other reports)

In Westwood v Secretary of State for Employment 15.3.84 House of Lords (to be reported in Industrial Law Reports) the House of Lords holds that the statutory right to minimum periods of notice amends the contract of employment. So an employee who is dismissed without statutory notice may sue for breach of contract but is under a duty to mitigate the loss.
