An important test...
The case of Howard Fredrics v Kingston University will be an important test of the Education Reform Act 1988's provisions that guarantee the rights of academics to challenge accepted wisdom without fear of losing their jobs. The right to report quality of service issues, as stipulated in contractually mandated staff regulations, and to hold minority viewpoints is at stake in what promises to be a landmark case to be heard in the London South Employment Tribunal in January 2009.
