HCA: implied term of mutual trust and confidence ruled out

Commonwealth Bank of Australia v Barker [2014] HCA 32 (10 September 2014)

The long awaited decision reversed the Full Federal Court’s decision.

I refer you to the judgment summary and briefing by Allens:

In brief: A landmark High Court decision has determined that a term of mutual trust and confidence is not necessary and should not be implied at law into employment contracts in Australia. Special Counsel Eleanor Jewell (view CV) reports.
