    Brown v Chief Adjudication Officer [1997] IRLR 110 CA (0 other reports)

In Brown v Chief Adjudication Officer 10.10 96 Court of Appeal, the Court of Appeal holds that an employer was liable to pay statutory sick pay (SSP) to a part-time employee who had been continuously employed for more than three months under a series of daily contracts. Deeming provisions in the employment protection legislation applied so as to convert the daily contracts into a contract for an indefinite period, enabling the employee to establish a "period of entitlement" under the SSP provisions.
