Housing (Scotland) Act 2001

Section 86: Transfer of staff

130.This section provides that the Scottish Ministers may make an order transferring the staff of Scottish Homes to the staff of the Scottish Administration. The terms and conditions of transferring staff will be determined by Ministers but, taken as a whole, must not be less favourable than those enjoyed by an individual employed by Scottish Homes immediately before the transfer. Subsections (3) and (4)are designed to provide protection to the staff that a transfer of employment under this section is not construed as a break in the continuity of their employment.
