O’Brien v Associated Fire Alarms

[1968] 1 WLR 1916

Case summary last updated at 18/02/2020 20:12 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case O’Brien v Associated Fire Alarms

P worked at D’s Liverpool branch. There was a shortage of work there and P refused D’s request to move to another branch. He was sacked, and P claimed this was redundancy (which D contested so as to avoid paying redundancy pay). CA held that, since there was no ‘mobility’ clause in P’s contract, whether express or implied, he could not have been sacked for breaching his contract. Rather, the dismissal must have been on grounds of redundancy.
