St Ives Plymouth Ltd v Haggerty - Question of whether contract of employment continues even when no work is actually being done is a question of fact  EAT
Ms Haggerty was employed as a casual worker at a printers. The work fluctuated greatly and at short notice. She was not obliged to do work when it was offered and would let St Ives know in advance which dates she would not be available. She also took time off for holidays and sick leave. After an argument, she walked out and claimed constructive unfair dismissal.
