    Janes Solicitors v Lamb-Simpson EAT/323/94 (0 other reports)

In Janes Solicitors v Lamb-Simpson 27.6.95 EAT 323/94 the EAT holds that an industrial tribunal was entitled to imply a contractual term that, on termination of employment, the employee should be paid in lieu of holiday entitlement accrued but not taken. In this case there were no written terms of employment and so, in the absence of an express oral agreement covering the point, there was wide scope for implication on the basis of business efficacy or the obvious intention of the parties.
