Conditions for payment of resettlement compensation

7.—(1) Without prejudice to any other requirement of these regulations, the conditions for the payment of resettlement compensation to any person are that—

(a)he has suffered, not later than 10 years after the material date, loss of employment attributable to the appropriate transfer order or to anything done in pursuance of such order;

(b)he has not at the date of the loss attained normal retiring age;

(c)he has, for a period beginning 3 years immediately before the material date and ending on the date of the occurrence of the loss, been continuously engaged (disregarding breaks not exceeding in the aggregate 6 months) for the whole or part of his time in relevant employment; and for this purpose the expression “relevant employmentincludes any period of national service immediately following such employment;

(d)he has made a claim for such compensation in accordance with the provisions of Part VII of these regulations not later than 13 weeks after the loss of employment which is the cause of his claim or 13 weeks after the coming into operation of these regulations, whichever is the later;

(e)the loss of employment which is the cause of his claim has occurred for some reason other than misconduct or incapacity to perform such duties as, immediately before the loss, he was performing or might reasonably have been required to perform; and

(f)he has not, subject to paragraph (3), been offered any reasonably comparable employment under the Crown, in the service of a local authority, a Passenger Transport Authority, an Executive or a subsidiary thereof.

(2) In ascertaining 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 shall be taken of the fact that the duties of the employment offered are in relation to a different service from that in connection with which his employment was held or are duties which involve a transfer of his employment from one place to another within Great Britain.

(3) No account shall be taken for the purposes of this regulation of an offer of employment where the compensating authority are satisfied—

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

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