Sunrise Brokers LLP v Rogers  EWHC 2633
Employee who resigns and refuses to work notice is bound to terms of contract
A repudiatory breach of the employment contract does not automatically terminate the contract without acceptance by the other party: this has been accepted law since Société Générale v Geys IRLR 122. In Sunrise Brokers LLP v Rodgers, a broker, Mr Rodgers, became dissatisfied with his employer, Sunrise, and accepted employment with a competitor, EOX. Despite being under a contractual obligation to advise Sunrise if he was offered alternative employment, he did not do so and in the meantime he disclosed confidential information to his new firm.
