Yapp v Foreign and Commonwealth Office – WLR Daily

Yapp v Foreign and Commonwealth Office [2014] EWCA Civ 1512; [2014] WLR (D) 501

‘The withdrawal, on operational grounds, of the claimant from his position in the diplomatic service as a British High Commissioner constituted a breach of his contract of employment by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, but such a withdrawal was not a breach of the latter’s common law duty of care. The development of psychiatric illness suffered by the claimant in consequence of the withdrawal was too remote to foresee for a claim for compensation’
