The new edition of the IDS Employment Law Handbook, ‘Continuity of Employment’, sets out the statutory rules governing how continuity is calculated. The law in this area can be complex, particularly where a contract of employment ceases to exist between two periods of employment with the same employer or where employment is transferred between employers. However, the Handbook offers a clear and comprehensive examination of the statutory rules and explains the relevant legislation and pertinent case law in a logical and understandable way. It:
- sets out the general principles for computing a period of continuous employment and explains how these rules are applied in the ordinary case where an employee is employed for an unbroken period under a contract of employment
- deals with the situation where, despite a break in employment, the statutory rules provide for continuity to be preserved; for example, where the employee has been off sick or there has been a temporary cessation of work
- discusses those rare situations where a ‘break’ in employment does not sever continuity as such but nor does it count in computing a period of continuous service; for example, weeks where the employee was on strike
- considers continuity of employment where there has been a change of employer; for example, where there has been a transfer of a business or undertaking.
This Handbook is an authoritative and indispensable guide to an important area of employment law that underpins many of the statutory employment protection rights available to employees
