posted 1 year ago

In Hugh O’Neill v Trinity College Dublin, the Workplace Relations Commission (“WRC”) heard a Complaint from Mr O’Neill (“the Complainant”) under the Protection of Employees (Fixed Term Work) Act 2003 (“the FTW Act”).   He claimed that Trinity College Dublin (“the Respondent”) had not renewed his fixed term contract due to the fact that if it was renewed, he would become entitled to a Contract of Indefinite Duration (“CID”).
