In the case of the Employer was lucky that the Employment Appeals Tribunal held that they did not intend to enter into any legally binding contractual commitment with the employee, rather the promise of a pay rise was a statement of intent.

Before a different Judge, this case could have turned out very differently and had there been informal discussion with the employee about pay rises, enhanced benefits etc. this decision could have been reported differently.
