Transfers from Accounts Commission

This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

8(1)With effect from 1st April 2000 each person who was, immediately before that date, employed as an officer of the Accounts Commission transfers to and becomes a member of the staff of Audit Scotland.

(2)The terms and conditions of appointment of such a person are to be determined by Audit Scotland but, taken as a whole, must be not less favourable to the person transferred than the terms on which that person was employed immediately before the transfer.

(3)Where a person becomes a member of the staff of Audit Scotland under sub-paragraph (1), then, for the purposes of the Employment Rights Act 1996 (c. 18), that person’s period of employment by the Accounts Commission counts as a period of employment by Audit Scotland and the change of employment does not break the continuity of the period of employment.

(4)Where a person ceases to be employed as an officer of the Accounts Commission by virtue of sub-paragraph (1) that person is not, on ceasing to be so employed, to be treated—

(a)for the purposes of any scheme or regulations by virtue of the Superannuation Act 1972 (c. 11) as having been retired on redundancy,

(b)for the purposes of Part XI of the Employment Rights Act 1996 (c. 18) as having been dismissed by reason of redundancy.
