    Constructive dismissal: Alleged pay rise promised at Christmas party not enforceable

    In Judge v Crown Leisure Ltd, the EAT holds the tribunal did not err in law in deciding, as a matter of factual analysis, that a conversation between the applicant and his manager at a staff Christmas party did not amount to an enforceable promise to increase his pay, but were merely words of comfort.

    Constructive dismissal: Three-month sickness absence not affirmation

    In El-Hoshi v Pizza Express Restaurants Ltd the EAT holds that an employee who has made a protected disclosure and is then subjected to a repudiatory breach of contract as a punishment for it, does not acquiesce in the breach by delaying three months before letting the employer know that he or she regards himself or herself as constructively dismissed, where during that period the employee is absent through sickness and submits regular sick notes.

    Nottinghamshire County Council v Meikle

    In Nottinghamshire County Council v Meikle [2004] IRLR 703 CA, the Court of Appeal held that putting an employee who was off sick for a disability-related reason on to half pay after a period of full pay was unjustified less favourable treatment where the employer had failed to make reasonable adjustments, which, had they been made, would have resulted in the employee's returning to work before she became liable to have her sick pay reduced.
