This report relates to 1 case(s)
Carver v Saudi Arabian Airlines  IRLR 370 CA (0 other reports)
The question of whether or not an employee "ordinarily works outside Great Britain" for the purposes of determining employment tribunal jurisdiction over unfair dismissal complaints must be determined by reference to the relevant terms of his or her contract of employment, express or implied, confirms the Court of Appeal in Carver (nee Mascarenhas) v Saudi Arabian Airlines 17.3.99 Court of Appeal. In the present case, therefore, the tribunal was obliged to consider the position as it appeared at the date the employee air stewardess's contract was made.
