The statutory provisions for continuity of employment are contained in ss 210–219 of the Employment Rights Act 1996 and the Employment Protection (Continuity of Employment) Regulations 1996. Continuity of employment is a statutory concept generally used, first, to determine whether an employee has been employed for a particular length of time so as to qualify for a specific statutory right, and, second, to ascertain the employee’s length of employment for the purpose of obtaining certain financial benefits award and a redundancy payment. This chapter discusses provisions for counting and computing continuity (ERA, ss 210–219) 362)); preserving continuity (s 212); weeks which do not count towards continuity (ss 215–217); change of employer (s 218); and effect of the continuity rules.
