    Holland v Glendale Industries Ltd [1998] ICR 493 EAT (0 other reports)

In Holland v Glendale Industries Ltd 14.5.98 EAT 903/97, the EAT upholds an employment tribunal's decision that an employee's complaint of unfair constructive dismissal failed because, although the employer's conduct towards the employee amounted to a repudiatory breach of his contract of employment, the employee had not told the employer that the breach was the reason for his resignation.

Mr Holland was employed to work in the parks and gardens in the London Borough of Wandsworth in 1979.
