How to count continuous experience
Under continuous service is considered to be the length of continuous service in the company. However, sometimes in continuous service may be counted and the periods from previous work. For example, if the hiatus since the dismissal before employment at the new work did not exceed specified time limits.
So, with resignation, the break should not exceed three weeks. However, such eligible employee may only use once a year, so if in 12 months the employee had 2 times to resign, the period of continuous work experience is not counted.
But if the employee has changed his place for a good reason, he has the right to expect that the period of the continuation of the continuousseniority increases to one month. This is possible, for example, when entering a university or moving to another locality.
It is also important to note that for certain categories of employees there is a possibility of a longer break between dismissal and employment.
Thus, persons who worked in the Far North (and equivalent territories), who quit at the end of the fixed-term employment contract, can look for a new employer for two months.
If the employee is forced to seek a new place of work because of the reorganization or liquidation of the organization, his uninterrupted work record remains for three months.
The same term is provided for persons dismissed due to incompatibility of the position for health reasons and disabled people.
It is important that if a woman has a child under the age of 14 (or a disabled child under the age of 16), her experience does not stop until the child reaches that age.
If the employee had resigned in connection with the transfer of the spouse (spouse) to work in another area, then he is not limited in time search of the employer, in this case it does not affect the continuity seniority .
In addition, the experience is not interrupted by pensioners, if from a previous job they quit on their own.
