English High Court decision re disciplinary proceedings - Smo v Hywel Dda University Health Board [QBD] 26.03.20 (Unreported)

The court granted the claimant employee an injunction to restrain the continuation of a "working relationships investigation" into his conduct whilst working as a consultant surgeon with the defendant health board, which the defendant had been carrying out in parallel with NHS disciplinary procedures. The defendant had not commenced the working relationships investigation on the basis of a discretionary power conferred on it by the claimant's employment contract, but had simply decided on a particular course of action in breach of the implied duty of mutual trust that it owed to the claimant.
