This is an important enquiry, particularly given the modern prominence of legislation as a form of law-making in the sphere of labour law. In Johnson v Unisys, Lord Hoffmann controversially invoked constitutional principle to halt the development of the common law of wrongful dismissal in the face of a statutory right not to be unfairly dismissed.’
