How to count the 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 an employee has changed his place for a good reason, then he has the right to expect that the term of the period of preservation of continuouslength of service 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 regions of the Far North (and territories equal to them), who quit after the expiry of an employment contract, can search for a new employer for two months.
If the employee is forced to look for a new job due to reorganization or liquidation of the organization, then his continuous work experience is maintained for three months.
The same period is provided for persons dismissed in connection with the disparity between their positions due to their state of health and persons with disabilities.
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 is not interrupted 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 length of service .
In addition, the experience is not interrupted by retirees, if they retired from their previous work.
