Employee returns after 3 weeks

Employee returns after 3 weeks

An employee of a client left for another job and was given a P45. Now after around 3 weeks the employee has returned with a P45 from other employee.

What are the rules regarding the employees enititlement to things like redundancy.

He worked originally for 18months , given the short period does he still have this 18 months "in the bank" towards future redundancy or does the clock start again.

Any advice would be appreciated

I would have expected clock to start again but ring ACAS for the answer.

ACAS basically stated that an employee’s continuous service is broken if their employment is interrupted by “a week or more” but a week is defined as a period of 7 days ending on a sunday, so could be up to 13 days I suppose.
