Inns Recruitment Ltd v Cockburn - Employee cannot be laid-off at reduced wage once he has been dismissed  EAT
Mr Cockburn was a driver's mate. His contract allowed for a period of "lay-off" at a reduced wage in a period when there was a shortage of work. Work reduced and at a meeting Inns dismissed Mr Cockburn - since this would be better for him in obtaining state assistance than if he resigned. Inns then offered him "lay-off terms".
