Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order.)

This Order, which comes into force on 1st April 1989, amends the Redundancy Payments (Local Government) (Modification) Order 1983 as amended by the Redundancy Payments (Local Government) (Modification) (Amendment) Order 1985 and by the Redundancy Payments (Local Government) (Modification) (Amendment) Order 1988. Those Orders modified certain redundancy payments provisions of the Employment Protection (Consolidation) Act 1978 in their application to persons employed in relevant local government service so that their employment in the service is to be treated as if it were continuous for the purposes of those provisions. This Order adds to the list of employers to whose employees the 1983 Order as amended applies.
