Cavenagh v William Evans Ltd: [2012] EWCA Civ 697;  [2012] WLR (D)  164

“Where an employer had elected to lawfully dismiss an employee under the term of the service agreement on payment of salary in lieu of the notice period, the employer was liable to pay the salary in lieu to the employee as an accrued debt. The employer could not later avoid payment on the basis that the employee had committed a gross misconduct prior to the date of the dismissal which the employer had discovered after the date of the dismissal.”
