'The Hierarchy of Differing Behavioural Standards in Labour Law: A Case for Limited Re-alignment?' Abstract: The paper assesses the hierarchy of differing behavioural standards present in the employment relationship. It considers the varying intensities of scrutiny exerted by adjudicators over managerial action and behaviour where an employment right is crafted as an open-textured standard rather than a rule. It argues for the re-alignment of standards in certain limited rights contexts, whilst positing that further empirical research is required before any call for the wholesale reform of the intensities of scrutiny associated with standards is made.
