The area of law to be discussed would be implied ‘terms of a contract which are not agreed by the parties.’ They are terms which are related to ‘contingencies which might affect the contract of employment in this case.’ This is what ‘parties intended but left unwritten in the gap of a contract.’ There are five conditions by which a contract would be satisfied before a term would be implied. They are ‘reasonable and equitable, necessary to give business efficacy so no term will be implied if contract is effective without it, obvious, clear expression and not contradict any express term of the contract.’ The analysis would address the viability of imported terms, implied terms, crystallised customs and the decisions of various cases. Relevant Facts and Relevant Issues
‘Appellants were employed by the respondent as baggage handler at Sydney Airport, they were dismissed from their employment’ for stealing funds. ‘Appellants sought an order for imposition of penalty and payment of penalty to them.’ Trial judge found out respondents in ‘terminating the appellants’ employment was not harsh, unjust or unreasonable and dismissed the claims.’ ‘The full court held that it was contrary however appellants were still not entitled to damages for breach of contract.’

There are three arguments in total. It was argued first that ‘C11(a) became a term of the contract of employment because provision was imported into the contract by the force of award independent of intention of parties.’ Another argument was it was an implied term of agreement between parties. It was also argued c11(a) consists of “crystallised custom” of industry which parties were engaged and became the term of contract. Even if c11(a) did not become term of contract, the purported termination of employment was in breach of that clause, for that reason was illegal and void. The first argument is supported from the Transport Workers Airlines Award 1988 similar to the case of Mallinson and Scottish Australian Investment Co Ltd ‘where an employee tried to recover in the New South Wales District Courts the difference between the award rate and the lesser amount which he had been paid.’ The second argument concluded from BP Refinery Pty Ltd v Shire of Hastings is that ‘it is not necessary to imply a term in the form of c11(a) for reasonable or effective contract of employment in all circumstances.’ The third argument should be implied because that terms may be implied through custom/trade usage where term may sometimes be implied by reason of established custom which includes established practice in the industry. The agreement from the statute can be used in supporting the appellant’s argument that the term be imported into the contract. Ratio/Rationes
‘The ratio decidendi is termination of employment by an employer shall not be harsh, unjust or unreasonable and termination of employment shall include termination with or without notice.’ Implied terms and imported terms will be brought into view to whether termination of the employment from the baggar handlers is reasonable or unreasonable. Evaluate Court’s decision
The court’s decision of termination of the appellants’ employment was not totally reasonable enough to terminate employment. The Implied argument that the ‘implied term of contract of employment should be rejected’ as there was no formal contract is not true as there was a formal contract. The “imported” term argument claims that the debt rises due to the statute and not the contract K. Company responded that ‘the only remedies are the ones expressly provided in the contract K which is the Commonwealth Councilation and Arbitration Act 1904 and ‘statute confers a new right and provides an enforcement of such right no other remedy is open.’ ‘In cases in which there is no express denial of right to bring an action, the proper procedure is to determine whether it contains “some provision to the contrary”’ whether there is intention for the legislature to provide remedy.’ This would mean that even if c11(a) does not contain any direct specific express term, there can be obligation for employer to perform their duties. Appellants are subject to dismissal if they become fit to work in the company determined by the employers. The court later found out that dismissal was wrongful and dismissal does not end the contract.

Reach a conclusion
It was concluded that Full Court making an advance decision without considering decision of the Trial judge and insufficient evidence was unreasonable. The implications of decision for future plaintiffs would be that they would be put through a trial judge first before going to a full court and at the same time the full court must consider the trial judge’s decision. Implication of terms would be term must satisfy the five requirements and there must be no degree of overlap. ‘In the reasons for judgment of the Full Court emphasis is placed upon the well-established rule that a contract cannot be brought to an end by breach by one party or by unilateral repudiation of its obligations’ shows that the termination was illegal and cannot be based on one sided argument. Therefore, termination of the employment was indeed harsh, unjust and unreasonable and future cases appellants should be able to make claims for the damages. Commercially, it is fair and sensible that employees should not have to face wrongful dismissal without prior investigations or evidence of wrongful acts.
