European Schools

July 15th, 2011

The Supreme Court judgment in Duncombe (No. 2) [2011] UKSC 36 was handed down today.  The SC held that teachers employed by the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families to work abroad at the European Schools fell within the scope of the principle in Lawson v Serco Ltd [2006] UKHL 3, [2006] ICR 250, and so were entitled to the protection against unfair dismissal conferred by section 94(1) of the Employment Rights Act 1996.
