Judgment No. 3728
The complaint is dismissed.
The complainant challenges the abolition of her post and the non-renewal of her fixed-term contract.
non-renewal of contract; complaint dismissed
The Tribunal notes that although the word “terminate” was used in various documents in the submissions, it appears that the complainant’s employment ended as a result of the expiry of her appointment.
termination of employment
The complainant appears to argue that the fact that she was informed on 31 May 2013 that her appointment was to be extended by a further three months also contravened Staff Rule 104.5. However that provision is cast in terms of what “normally” should occur by way of notification of an extension and thus accommodates exceptions. There was no contravention of this provision when the complainant was informed at the expiry of her appointment that it would be extended for a further three months. That extension was plainly intended to benefit the complainant (see, for example, Judgment 3582, consideration 12).
