Reports relating to this case:

  • International employment disputes: Where employee worked longest may determine habitual place of work

    15 July 2002

    In Weber v Universal Ogden Services Ltd, the European Court of Justice rules that, where an employee works in more than contracting state, the Brussels Convention requires that the place where he or she "habitually carries out . . . work", for the purposes of conferring jurisdiction in contractual disputes on the courts of that contracting state, must be the place where the employee performs the essential part of his or her contractual duties.
