Hello, Wondering if anyone had any advice/suggestions for this problem: I have been working at my current school for 2 years (and 1 month). I was intially employed on a fixed term contract for 6 months (reason for fixed term was falling roll numbers requiring the reduction of staff). It was then extended twice, at the end of each academic year, so is now due to expire on 31.08.2012. I have been told that it will not be renewed this summer. The reason given was the the head of department was resigning as head of department, but continuing as a teacher at the school. Therefore the Head is going to advertise for a new HOD which means there will be too many staff in the department. So because I am the only one on a fixed term contract, I have to go. I've been doing some research over the weekend and I am supicious that this is not quite right. Also, what redundancy pay, if any, am I entiled to? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. Brown Owl.
