Redundancy Pay - Continuous Service
Continuous service means working for the same employer without interruption.
Absence from work through sickness, pregnancy or temporary reduction of work does not affect continuous service. The start date for employment may be altered to take into account strike days, but not for lock out days.
Length of continuous service is counted backwards form the last day of the notice period given by the employer. If not enough notice has been given, the outstanding time can be added on. There is a limit of 20 years’ service and 30 weeks’ payment.
Any dispute you may have with your employer about the length of your continuous service can be settled by an employment tribunal.
