Ali v Petroleum Company of Trinidad and Tobago

Redundancy – Calculation of amount of payment. The Privy Council dismissed the appellant employee's appeal against the Court of Appeal of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago's decision that a living allowance loan by the respondent employer fell to be repaid, as he had not served a further five years with the employer because he had taken a voluntary redundancy. Although the courts below had erred in failing to consider whether a term was to be implied, they had correctly concluded that the employee's claim failed because he had voluntarily left his employment.
