Redundancy: Dismissals because of expiry of fixed-term contracts did not trigger collective redundancy consultation obligations

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In University of Stirling v University and College Union [2012] IRLR 266 EAT, the EAT held that dismissals because of the expiry of fixed-term contracts were for a reason related to the employees concerned. Accordingly, they were not redundancy dismissals within the meaning of s.195 of TULR(C)A, and did not trigger the statutory duty on the employer to consult in respect of collective redundancies.
