No. 326 The Fixed-Term Employees (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2008
These Regulations amend the 2002 Regulations by providing for statutory sick pay to be paid to employees who are agency workers on fixed term contracts of less than 3 months duration.
These Regulations provide for the established definition of a disability for the purposes of the 1995 Act, that is, a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long term adverse effect on the person’s ability to carry out normal day to day activities.
This Order relates to the issue of continuity of employment in the context of undergoing professional training and being employed successively by a number of different health service employers.
