Unfair dismissal: Different standard of fairness for temporary employees

This report relates to 2 case(s)

  • expand disabled

    Gwent County Council v Lane and other appeals [1977] IRLR 337 EAT (0 other reports)

  • expand disabled

    J Terry v East Sussex County Council [1976] IRLR 332 EAT (0 other reports)

When the fixed term contract of a temporary employee expires without being renewed, the test of fairness may be less stringent than would be adopted for an employee whose status was not seen from the start as temporary. This is one of the points to emerge from Gwent County Council v Lane.
