Continuity of employment

Clio SpringerEditor's message: Your employees’ continuity of service determines the employment rights to which they are entitled. While some rights do not require employees to have worked for your organisation for any particular length of time, other rights, particularly key employment protection rights such as the right to statutory redundancy pay and the right to claim "ordinary" unfair dismissal, depend on them having worked for you for a determined period.

It is advisable to establish your organisation's employees' continuous service so that you can ascertain what your legal obligations are in relation to those employees.
