Jaffery Academy teachers appeal against judgment okaying pay cut by the school

Teachers from Jaffery Academy have appealed against a ruling by the High Court that upheld the institution’s decision to cut their May salaries by 65 per cent due to the Covid-19 crisis.

The teachers said Justice James Rika erred in his interpretation of Section 10 (5) of the Employment Act.

Through their lawyer Jane Onyango, the teachers want the Appellate court to set aside Justice Rika’s judgment and appoint a different judge to hear their petition and a contempt application they claim was never heard by the judge.

Justice Rika had on July 29, 2020 ruled that the changes in the teachers’ contracts were neither in violation of Article 41 of the Constitution nor Section 10 [5] of the Employment Act.
