Leave to appeal to the Supreme Court has been granted to an employee in a case where the Court of Appeal decided that his employment contract had been terminated on the date on which the payment in lieu of notice (PILON) money was paid into his bank account, despite the employee having no knowledge of it. The Court of Appeal decision was based on the proposition that there was no need for an employer to communicate its decision to terminate when it was using a PILON clause under the contract, despite the fact that this seems to go against the principle that notice of termination should be clear and unequivocal.
