UK Statutory Absence - Using Civil Service start date for length of service
For calculations regarding absences, both occupational and statutory, the Home Office (and civil service rules) state that the full service is taken into account for the purpose of SSP, SMP, SAP, SPP and ShPL.
Full service means all qualifying service with another government department where there has been no break in service prior to joining the Home Office as the Crown is considered the employer, rather than the individual Legal Entity. It is worth noting that this is confirmed by the fact that TUPE legislation doesn't apply to transfer of functions between central Government Departments and agencies as this does not involve a change of employer.
Please could Oracle confirm how this should be approached? We have reviewed the documents provided by Oracle to configure UK Statutory Absence, however, the Fast Formula provided uses the current hire date of the employee which would be incorrect for all government departments not just the Home Office.
