Ad hoc employee canít claim regular job, rules High Court

The Gujarat High Court has recently ruled that an ad hoc appointee has no right to claim regular employment over a time.

The ruling came after a decade-long legal battle wherein an ad hoc appointee in the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) had sought appointment on regular basis after repeated job extensions.

Acting on a special civil application, the HC vacated an earlier stay order on the termination of ad hoc service of Deepak Parshottam Bhatt, a museum attendant on a fixed term appointment. The court observed that he was not appointed on sanctioned post by following any selection process as per the rules.

"He, therefore, cannot seek regularisation," the court ruled, adding, "His challenge to termination also must fail, as a temporary and ad hoc employee on fixed period basis post, he had no right to the post."
