Reports relating to this case:

  • Continuity of employment: Motive behind "gap" in employment irrelevant for continuity purposes

    Date:
    1 June 1999

    In determining the question of continuity of employment for statutory employment protection purposes, employment tribunals need only examine each relevant week (that is, a week ending on a Saturday) to ascertain whether or not during any part of it an employee was working under a contract of employment for the employer against whom a claim is brought, holds the EAT in Sweeney v J & S Henderson (Concessions) Ltd.
