    30 August 2011

    The Employment Appeal Tribunal has confirmed that continuity of employment, for the purposes of calculating a claimant's basic award for unfair dismissal, does not arise in the NHS, where the claimant has worked for several different health service employers, unless s.218(8) of the Employment Rights Act 1996 or the TUPE legislation applies.
