    Borkett v Workers Educational Association EAT/275/98 (0 other reports)

A lecturer who had entered into teaching contracts with his employer every term from 1984 until the autumn term of 1996, with the exception of the summer term of that year, could not establish continuity of employment for the purpose of bringing unfair dismissal proceedings when this arrangement terminated, holds the EAT in Borkett v Workers Educational Association 7.4.99 EAT 275/98. He had not been offered a contract for the summer term of 1996 because he had been called for jury service, and in those circumstances he was not to be regarded by arrangement or custom as continuing in his employer's employment during that term.
