Sunrise Brokers LLP v Rodgers is the salutary tale of an equity derivatives broker who gambled in his decision to leave his employer for a competitor.

He rolled the dice, choosing not to give notice and refusing to work.  The employer responded: affirming the contract and withholding salary.  The employee lost.

Employers and employees should heed the warnings and learn the lessons contained in this alert from Kelly Thomson in our Employment team.
