Sacked town clerk Erbie Murat will have to wait until January to find out if a tribunal rules he was unfairly dismissed.
It will coincide with the second anniversary of his suspension, later sacking, from Wisbech Town Council.
The former town clerk has already been embroiled in a 10 day hearing at an employment tribunal in Huntingdon in September.
This week the resumed tribunal is meeting for three further days to hear legal submissions and closing arguments.
The panel will then formally draft their response to the claims and counter claims with their decision not expected until after Christmas.

Mr Murat was summarily dismissed from the post he had held since 2007 in November of last year. Gross misconduct claims raised at the inquiry include allegations he allow unauthorised access to the council’s IT system.
His compensation claims for unfair dismissal amount to around £80,000; the town council has always contested his claims.
