Continuity of employment: Alternate week working did not break continuity

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Colley v Corkindale t/a Corker's Lounge Bar [1995] ICR 965, the EAT holds that a contractual part-time working arrangement of five-and-a-half hours every other week counted towards the computation of the employee's period of continuous employment, and so did not exclude her from making an unfair dismissal complaint. Continuity was not broken by the fact that the employee did no work on alternate weeks.
