This report relates to 1 case(s)
Howman & Son v Blyth  IRLR 139 EAT (0 other reports)
Where a contract of employment does not specify a limit to the duration of sick pay, it does not continue indefinitely but only for a reasonable period, holds the EAT in Howman & Son v Blyth 4.2 83 EAT/262/82. However In deciding what is a reasonable period, Tribunals should consider the limit specified in a national agreement in the relevant industry.
Mr Blyth was employed by a firm of builders and undertakers for about 35 years.
