    Kelvin International Services Ltd v Walker 23 June 1999 CS (0 other reports)

The question as to where an employee who was employed either under a series of separate contracts or a series of variations of a contract "ordinarily worked", had to be answered by looking at the terms applicable during a particular period and at the place where the employee was actually performing his work, holds the Inner House of the Court of Session in Kelvin International Services Ltd v Walker 14.7.99 Court of Session. In the present case, the proper conclusion was that the employee "ordinarily worked" outside Great Britain under the contract in force when his employment ended and so had no right to claim unfair dismissal.
