Singapore Law Gazette Article

We are pleased to announce that our case update on the harmonisation of the doctrine of repudiation and its effect on the determination of a contract, has been picked up by the Singapore Law Gazette. The Singapore Law Gazette article can be found here.

The article examines the UK Supreme Court decision of Societe Generale, London Branch v Geys [2012] UKSC 63, where the majority of the court put to bed the so-called automatic theory of repudiation in contracts of employment. Instead, the UK Supreme Court affirmed the elective doctrine of repudiation in which the innocent party may elect to either accept the repudiation or affirm the contract. So long as the employment contract is affirmed, the contract subsists and has not been terminated. This is consistent with other types of contracts.
