ADVERTISEMENT “This court is to check labour practice and for the defendant to say their employment was temporary connotes unfair labour practices” She said even though an employer has the right to terminate employment, such actions must be done in accordance with established conditions of service and she said the Edo state government did not do that in this case. Justice Adewemimo said though the government did not show any evidence that the school was no longer in existence but that it was being restructured and therefore it would be difficult to reinstate the workers as demanded.
