Alexander & Ors v Standard Telephones Cables Ltd (No.2)


Chancery Division

Defendant had no work for plaintiffs and selected them for redundancy on basis of retaining the employees most useful to itself and not of "last in first out" as was arguably provided for in their terms of employment. The defendant had not shown sufficient confidence in the plaintiffs within Powell v Brent London Borough Council (1987) (Independent, August 10, 1987). The plaintiffs' remedy lay in damages rather than in asserting that they did not accept employer's repudiation of their employment contracts. Interlocutory injunction to restrain employer from terminating contracts refused. Toby Kempster represented the plaintiffs.
