Hilton v Shiner Ltd Builders Merchants [2001] IRLR 727 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Duty of trust and confidence: Demotion did not breach implied term of trust and confidence

    15 September 2001

    The EAT holds in Hilton v Shiner Ltd that an employment tribunal had erred in holding, without giving reasons, that there was no fundamental change in an employee's contract in circumstances where the employee had been demoted from a position which included serving customers and the handling of money to one in which he was not allowed to do either.
