The Supreme Court has handed down its long-awaited landmark decision in the appeal of Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust v Haywood, ruling that notice of termination takes effect neither when the termination letter is posted by the employer, nor when it is put through the employee’s front door but when the employee actually reads it.  This will therefore effect when they can put claims in.
