Guidance for all staff on Continuous Service Provisions

The following guidance applies to staff who choose to move into The Four Stones Multi Academy Trust voluntarily:

  • We will recognise previous continuous service with any local authority (or one of its constituent authorities under the Local Government Act 1972) which runs up to the date on which you start work with The Four Stones Multi Academy Trust.
  • The calculation of continuous service for rights such as maternity and sickness benefit are different for teaching and support staff and vary depending on the situation and are explained briefly in the file here.
  • Please note that all staff who choose to move into The Four Stones Multi Academy Trust voluntarily are covered under the Redundancy Payments (Continuity of Employment in Local Government etc) (Modification) Order 1999. The Modification Order provides that where an employee moves employment between any bodies listed on the Modification Order without a break between these employments, all previous continuous service will be recognised for the purposes of calculating pay in a redundancy situation. A break in service of more than one week (running from Sunday to Saturday) between contracts normally constitutes a break in service.
