Contracts of employment: Employer's attempt to withdraw enhanced redundancy scheme fails
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Lee and others v GEC Plessey Telecommunications  IRLR 383 HC (0 other reports)
An employer had no right to withdraw unilaterally its employees' contractual entitlement to enhanced redundancy payments, holds the High Court in Lee and others v GEC Plessey Telecommunications. Furthermore, those entitlements were not extinguished by a collective agreement reached between the employer and relevant trade unions, because the terms of such agreements were no longer automatically incorporated into contracts of employment.
