Connor v Surrey County Council [2010] EWCA Civ 286; [2010] WLR (D) 83

“A duty of care owed by a public body to one of its employees as a function of that employment relationship and which existed independently of the impact of action or inaction under statute could be violated, so as to give rise to a claim for damages, by failure to exercise a statutory discretion, but only where the discretion was, or would have been able to be, exercised consistently with the duty-ower’s full performance of its public law functions.”
