    Flack and others v Kodak Ltd [1986] IRLR 255 CA (0 other reports)

In Flack and others v Kodak Ltd 22.5.86 Court of Appeal the Court of Appeal upholds the EAT's decision that when determining whether a gap in employment is due to a temporary cessation of work, thus preserving continuity of employment, a tribunal must look at all the circumstances of the case In the context of the whole period of employment, rather than adopt a strict mathematical approach.

We reported the EAT's decision in this case in IRLIB 292, where the facts are set out in detail.
