Verdict against Ryanair’s redundancy notices to Canarian workforce is confirmed by Audiencia Nacional

Updated 12 June: The Audiencia Nacional has confirmed the nullification of the redundancy notice issued to 224 Ryanair staff in the Canaries after no parties appealed the earlier verdict against the airline. Ryanair is required to readmit all employees immediately under the same conditions that applied before their services were terminated, and to reimburse full backpayment of wages lost during their layoff.

Original post 24 April: Spain’s Audiencia Nacional (National Court) has declared null and void Ryanair’s redundancy notice issued to 224 workers in the Canaries. The Court says that Ryanair’s layoffs were an abuse of law because the company rejected the possibility, legally required, to enter into a consultation period with staff. As such, the Court orders Ryanair to readmit all employees immediately under the same conditions that applied before their services were terminated, and to reimburse full backpayment of wages lost during their illegal layoff. I doubt this will affect much in the way of flights, but I’m sure it will feed into the discourse! Ryanair has five working days in which to appeal to the Supreme Court against the decision.
