A foreign employee recently secured a landmark judgment in the National Industrial Court in relation to redundancy benefits that he had claimed while employed by the defendant. The judgment reinforces the well-established principle of interpreting the plain and ordinary meaning of employment contracts and strengthens the position of local and foreign employees seeking to enforce their rights where these are clearly provided for in their respective employment contracts, policies or handbooks.
