Gavin Mansfield QC Successfully Defeats Enhanced Redundancy Terms Claim

In Patel v De Vere Group Ltd. (25/4/13, Manchester  Mercantile Court) Gavin Mansfield QC acted for the successful Defendant,  a hotel group, in defeating a claim by its former Group Accountant for  an enhanced redundancy payment. The Claimant was paid an enhanced  payment on termination, but sought a further six figure sum, alleging  terms implied by custom and practice, variations of his contract, and  promissory estoppel. Following an eight day trial HHJ Hegarty QC  dismissed all claims, in a judgment which contains a wide-ranging survey  of the legal principles applicable when employees try to imply a  redundancy scheme into their contract of employment.
