Duty of Mutual Trust and Confidence

This term is a mutually implied term in every employment contract. In order to succeed with a claim, an employee needs to show that the effect of the employer’s conduct was likely to destroy or seriously damage trust and confidence between the parties, even if that effect was not intended. If there is reasonable and proper cause for the employer’s conduct, there will be no breach.

Please see the case Morrow v. Safeway for more details.
