Private sector part-timers can claim unfair dismissal

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Mediguard Services Ltd v Thame (29 July 1994) EOR57B, the EAT rules that unfair dismissal compensation is "pay" for the purpose of Article 119 of the EC Treaty, so that private sector employees with two years' service working between eight and 16 hours per week can bring an unfair dismissal complaint against their employers by relying directly upon EC law.
