Quantas Cabin Crew (UK) Ltd v (1) Lopez (2) Hooper - construction of contractual terms
1. A tribunal must be cautious of applying an "Autoclenz approach" to interpretation on individual clauses in an employment contract where there is no suggestion that they are a sham: settled principles of construction must still apply.
2. A claim for unlawful deduction of wages cannot be made in respect of payments form an employer which are in reality payments of expenses.
