Trinity College -v- Ifut
CORRECTION:In an item in this column on Monday last entitled “Trinity College -v- Ifut” it was stated that “Ifut has asked us to point out the Labour Court found ‘no existing exit provisions applied’ in the case, which was referred to in a previous article, “Legal Opinion’, by Mary Redmond.
The Labour Court ruling in favour of the Trinity College employees did not address the issue of existing exit provisions and did not make a finding on this issue.
The ruling stated: “The court finds that the claimants’ individual employment history, for reasons specific to each of them individually, entitles each of them to rely on the commitment set out in Clause 1.6 of the Public Service Agreement 2010-2014.”
The Court recommended that the claimants be reinstated in their respective posts and any issues managed through redeployment or redundancy.
