Staff becoming established civil servants

19.—(1) Where any person to whom this part of these regulations applies was in the full-time unestablished employment of the Company immediately before the date of transfer and under arrangements made between him or any staff association on his behalf and the Postmaster-General he elects to become an established civil servant as from the date of transfer, regulation thirteen shall have effect in relation to him as it has in relation to persons to whom Part IV of these regulations applies.

(2) Where any person to whom this part of these regulations applies was employed by the Company immediately before the date of transfer

(a)in a probationary capacity with a view to being admitted into the pensionable employment of the Company, or

(b)in full-time unestablished employment with the benefit of an undertaking by the Company that he would be admitted into the pensionable employment of the Company if at the end of a period of deferment of such admission he satisfied the Company that he was medically fit for such admission,

and under such arrangements as aforesaid he elects to become an established civil servant on satisfying the Postmaster-General in case (a) that his health, conduct and efficiency, or in case (b) that his health, are or is such as would have been regarded by the Company as satisfactory for the purpose of his admission into the pensionable employment of the Company, the Superannuation Acts shall have effect in relation to him on his admission as an established civil servant notwithstanding that, although his appointment is not held directly from the Crown, he is admitted without a certificate of the Civil Service Commissioners; and if under the said arrangements his election to become an established civil servant is retrospective to the date on which the Postmaster-General was satisfied as aforesaid, his service between that date and the date on which he exercises such election shall be deemed for the purpose of the Superannuation Acts to be service as an established civil servant.

(3) The service of any person to whom paragraph (1) or paragraph (2) of this regulation applies in the employment of the Company, and the service of any such person in the employment of any of the Companies mentioned in the Second Schedule hereto, being in either case service which, by virtue of any agreement, arrangement, or customary practice of the Company, was reckonable by the Company for the purpose of retiring or death gratuity or other pension, shall, for the purposes of the provisions of the Superannuation Acts which relate to the reckoning of unestablished service for the purpose of an award to an established civil servant, be treated as if it had been employment in the civil service of the State in an unestablished capacity, the whole of which had been served before the passing of the Superannuation Act, 1949.
