JUDGMENT

Introduction

[1] This is an appeal by CIMB Bank Berhad ("the Bank"). The 1st respondent is Ahmad Suhairi Mat Ali. He was the Claimant in the Industrial Court. For convenience, we shall refer to the Appellant as "the Bank", and the 1st respondent as "the Claimant". This is a case of "constructive dismissal". The Claimant's claim was dismissed by the Industrial Court. The High Court allowed Judicial Review and quashed the Award of the Industrial Court and granted the relief of compensation. We have dealt with the law on constructive dismissal in some detail before analysing the facts and the legal issues relevant to the claim. The detailed background facts are found at para 34 onwards of this judgment. This Court's analysis, decision and the reasons for the same are at para 74 onwards.

[2] The Claimant was at all material times an employee of the Bank. This case emanated from a complaint by the Claimant pursuant to s 20 of the Industrial Relations Act 1967 ("the Act") that he had been "constructively dismissed" by the Bank. The complaint of constructive dismissal was precipitated by the Bank's transfer and re-designation order per their letter dated 8 May 2012. In the context of the complaint that was presented to the Industrial Court, the question was whether the Claimant had established that the Bank had breached an implied term of the contract of employment that they would not make such substantial changes in the duties and status of Claimant as to constitute a fundamental breach of contract.
