Reports relating to this case:

  • Contracts of employment: Termination payment not penalty clause

    18 November 2005

    In Murray v Leisureplay plc, the Court of Appeal holds that a clause in a director's service agreement that provided for one year's salary and other benefits to be paid on termination of the contract by the employer, was held not to be unenforceable as a penalty, as it was justifiable on commercial grounds.
