Length in service/redundancy
The University of Leeds management has sought to clarify the UCU’s evidence that they have put over 1000 of their staff at risk of redundancy by explaining that we are just talking about fixed term staff and employees on a fractional or hourly paid contracts (or ‘student helpers’ as the Pro-Vice Chancellor for Staff, Steve Scott, prefers to call them).
In law, an employee who has been on the payroll for over four years has the right to permanent employment status.
Given this, you might wish to consider the University’s appeal (that the section 188 notices they have offered relate mostly to fixed-term staff) against the evidence of length in service, given below, for all staff covered by those section 188 notices.
