Tribunal jurisdiction: Teachers employed abroad by Government can bring unfair dismissal claims in Great Britain

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Duncombe and others v Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families [2011] IRLR 498 SC, the Supreme Court held that the employment of teachers seconded to European Schools on successive fixed-term contracts was objectively justified. However, the teachers could bring unfair dismissal claims in Great Britain in respect of the non-renewal of those contracts, even though they worked wholly abroad.
