    Length of service - as and when work 1st Dec 17 at 4:04 PM
    I have recently found out Iím going to be made redundant and my employer has stated that I will only be entitled to two years worth of redundancy pay (the length of time I have been in my current full-time role). However prior to this role I worked for the same company on an Ďas and whení contract for three years. There were no breaks in my work with them and I went straight from my previous role to my current one meaning I have worked for them continuously for 5 years. What are my rights regarding this?

    What does your contract say? Contracts normally include a start date and in your case a statement which will probably say 'this employment is not continuous with any previous employment'. (Sorry for the bad news, but it's worth checking.)
    I'm the Board Guide on the Matched Betting; Referrers and Jobseeking & Training boards. I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move and merge posts there. Board guides are not moderators and don't read every post. If you spot an illegal or inappropriate post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with this). Any views are mine and not the official line of MoneySavingExpert.com.

    Though tbf even if it says it isn't continuous doesn't mean it isn't

    Be interesting to see the contract details

    Depending on what the contract says...you still had a contract with them and no breaks: I think you're right to argue for 5 years' continuous employment unless contract specifically says otherwise.
