  • Fixed-term contracts: Redundancy waiver in short contract was valid

    15 May 1997

    If an employee enters into a fixed-term contract for two years or more with a written waiver agreement attached, and that term is renewed for a further fixed period of any duration whatever, then, provided he or she enters into a fresh waiver agreement during the currency of the extended term, his or her right to claim a redundancy payment is validly excluded, holds the EAT Housing Services Agency v Cragg.
