Where an individual is TUPE transferred does his or her continuous service start from the date of the transfer or from the start of employment with the transferor?

When an employee is transferred to another employer under TUPE, his or her continuous service continues to run from the start of employment with the transferor. The transferee effectively steps into the shoes of the transferor as if the contract of employment had originally been made with the transferee. The transferee is obliged to honour the past continuous service with the transferor.
