Court of Appeal

Ward, Leveson, Pitchford LLJ

The test for whether a unilaterally imposed management policy is enforceable as a term of a contract of employment is to ask whether the policy was agreed either expressly or by implication; and to determine whether it has been agreed, factors to be taken into account include whether the policy has been drawn to the attention of employees; whether it was followed without exception for a substantial period; and the reasonable expectations of employees.
