Stage 6: Appeal

An employee may appeal against notice of dismissal on grounds of redundancy.  Details of the appropriate appeal process are included in the notice of dismissal (Pro-forma letter A8).

Any such appeal must follow one of two arrangements:

For academic and academic-related staff

For support staff

In all cases, every effort will be made to hear appeals before the date on which the individual's employment is due to end.  Employment will not be extended to hear the appeal. If it has not been possible to hear the appeal before the date of the dismissal, an employee whose appeal is successful will be reinstated with full continuity of service and no loss of pay or other employment benefits.  The employee will be required to return any payment made in respect of any termination of employment.
