    Drage v Governors of Greenford High School [2000] IRLR 314 CA (0 other reports)

In Drage v Governors of Greenford High School 16.3.00 Court of Appeal, the Court of Appeal holds that, on a correct application of the law, the effective date of termination of a teacher's employment was the date his internal appeal against summary dismissal failed, pending which he had continued to be suspended on full pay, and not the date on which it was decided to terminate his employment with immediate effect. During the period between the initial notification and the outcome of the appeal, the teacher stood suspended with the possibility of the proposed dismissal not being confirmed, and the suspension thus being ended, rather than dismissed with the possibility of reinstatement.
