Where employees are TUPE transferred does their continuous service start from the date of the transfer or from the start of employment with the transferor?

When employees are transferred to another employer under TUPE, their continuous service continues to run from the start of their 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 employee's past continuous service with the transferor.
