Continuous employment and employee rights
Employment protection law gives employees several individual rights. Many of these rights are only available to employees who have been continuously employed for a minimum period.
This guide explains what continuous employment is, and when it is judged to begin and end.
It also covers continuous employment and breaks in work, continuous employment for statutory payments, reinstating or re-engaging an employee, the effect a change of employer has on continuous employment, and the minimum periods of continuous employment and qualification dates for employment rights.
