Failed Business Reorganisation: Compensating the Stigmatised Employee
Author: Mangan, David

Publisher: Hart Publishing
Abstract:Couching the decision in the language of mutual trust and confidence, the Court of Appeal ruled in Chagger v Abbey National plc that the discriminatory conduct of the employer breached the employment contract in such a manner that the plaintiff could no longer pursue a career in his area of expertise. The case offers comments on the interaction between discrimination and business reorganisation laws.
Most particularly, it provides a fresh opportunity to consider the mutual obligation of trust and confidence in employment law.
