    (1) Duncombe and others (2) Fletcher v Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families [2010] IRLR 331 CA (0 other reports)

fixed-term contracts | territorial jurisdiction | European law rights

Territorial limitations to unfair dismissal rights should be modified where necessary to enable a right emanating from European law to be enforced.
