Eligibility for resettlement compensation

7.—(1)  Subject to the provisions of these regulations, compensation under this Part of these regulations (referred to in these regulations as “resettlement compensation” ) may be paid to a person who since the coming into force of these regulations has lost his employment as an officer of an Association if

(a)in the opinion of the Secretary of State the loss of employment was due to a relevant cause;

(b)the person had been for a period of not less than three years immediately preceding the qualifying date continuously engaged (which for the purposes of this regulation means without breaks of more than six months in the aggregate) for the whole or part of his time in relevant employment;

(c)the person had at the date of the loss of employment not attained normal retiring age;

(d)the person has made a claim for resettlement compensation in accordance with the provisions for making claims set out in Part X of these regulations not later than thirteen weeks after the loss of employment which is the cause of his claim; and

(e)the person has not, subject to paragraph (3) of this regulation, been offered any reasonably comparable employment under the Crown or by an Association.

(2) In determining for the purposes of this regulation whether a person has been offered employment which is reasonably comparable with the employment which he has lost no account will be taken of the fact that the duties of the employment offered are duties which involve a transfer of his employment from one place to another within England and Wales, within Scotland, within Northern Ireland or within the Isle of Man.

(3) No account shall be taken for the purposes of this regulation of an offer of employment which a person has refused before the coming into operation of these regulations or of any offer of employment where the Secretary of State is satisfied—

(a)that acceptance would have involved undue hardship to that person, or

(b)that he was prevented from accepting the offer by reason of ill-health or other circumstances beyond his control.
