This week's legal case round-up by Eversheds covering: compensation for unfair dismissal; and restrictive covenvants.
An employer was in repudiatory breach of the implied trust and confidence term when its senior executives pressurised two City brokers to accept a variation to their contractual terms, which would have resulted in them being paid on a commission-only basis and losing valuable rights to fixed annual remuneration plus bonuses, the High Court holds in Cantor Fitzgerald International v Bird and others.
In McCabe v Cornwall County Council and another, the Court of Appeal allows an appeal against an order of the High Court that an original claim for damages for psychiatric injury, resulting from events leading up to and flowing from the claimant's dismissal, could not be substituted by a new claim limited in concern to events prior to dismissal.
In Bank of Credit and Commerce International SA (in liquidation) v Ali and others (No.3), the Court of Appeal holds that, where a claimant alleges that stigma resulting from his or her previous employment affected his or her employment prospects, it was for him or her to prove that the stigma had a real or substantial effect on his or her obtaining employment.
