Continuous service: Continuity of employment preserved across college summer vacation

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Hussain v Acorn Independent College Ltd [2011] IRLR 463 EAT, the EAT held that a teacher had the requisite one-year period of continuous employment to bring a complaint of unfair dismissal. Continuity was preserved over the college summer vacation between his first temporary contract and a subsequent contract because his absence was on account of a "temporary cessation of work".
