An industrial tribunal has rejected a claim of unfair dismissal brought against Highland Council by former Ross and Cromarty DC deputy director of finance Colin Mackenzie, reports The Glasgow Herald (p8).

Mr Mackenzie said he left the council because he believed he would not be offered a suitable post after local government reorganisation and would be made redundant.

He handed in his resignation weeks before the new council was due to take over and later claimed constructive dismissal by Highland.

The council said Mr Mackenzie had been eligible to apply for posts with the new council but had not done so.

The tribunal heard that Mr Mackenzie had accepted a job outside local government before handing in his resignation. He later argued he would not have taken the post if it were not for reorganisation and that his situtation was tantamount ot constructive dismissal.

The council rejected his claim for a redundancy payment.
