Continuity of employment: Motive behind "gap" in employment irrelevant for continuity purposes
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Sweeney v J & S Henderson (Concessions) Ltd  IRLR 306 EAT (0 other reports)
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  IRLR 306. If that question is answered in the affirmative, no further enquiry is required.
