International Islamic University Islamabad stopped from denying its teachers allowances

ISLAMABAD, Aug 28: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Tuesday stopped the International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) from withdrawing the special allowance it had been paying to its 64 teachers and asked the university to explain its decision.

IHC Chief Justice Iqbal Hameedur Rehman issued the order while admitting a petition of the teachers of the faculty of management sciences against the IIUI’s decision that would have taken effect on September 1 and lost them between Rs20,000 and Rs50,000 per month.

Before it put off the matter for hearing to September 20, the petitioners’ counsel Shoaib Shaheen told the court that in withdrawing the allowances, the IIUI violated “the settled terms and conditions” of his clients’ employment and the principles of natural justice as the university issued the notification about it without providing the aggrieved teachers a chance to present their case.View the original article here
