Judgment No. 444
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
Assurances were allegedly given that the complainant's temporary contract would be replaced by a fixed-term contract. This was done later than expected and the complainant suffered some financial loss. However, he does not prove that the assurance he allegedly received was anything more than an expression of hope and belief.
