    Corkhill v North Sea Ferries 11 February 1994 CA (0 other reports)

An industrial tribunal, in ruling that a three-month gap in employment broke a ferry officer's continuity of service, did not fail to take account of his whole employment history, holds the Court of Appeal in Corkhill v North Sea Ferries. The tribunal had been entitled to find that the employee's previous seasonal work was entirely different from his later employment giving relief cover when officers were sick or on leave, and that the earlier pattern of work was of no assistance in determining whether the gap in the later employment was a "temporary cessation of work".
