Employment

2 (1) This paragraph has effect where rights, powers, duties and liabilities relating
to an individual’s contract of employment are transferred in accordance

Employment Rights Act 1996 (redundancy) as having been
dismissed by virtue of the transfer, and

(b) 10the individual’s period of employment in the civil service of the
Crown counts as a period of employment with the CAA for the
purposes of that Act.

15powers, duties and liabilities relating to an individual’s contract of

of State or the CAA that the individual objects to the transfer.

(2) Those rights, powers, duties and liabilities are not transferred under the
20transfer scheme.

the day on which the transfer would occur.

(4) The individual is not, for any purpose, to be regarded as having been
dismissed.

(5) 25Nothing in this paragraph affects the individual’s right to terminate the
contract of employment if, apart from the change of employer, a substantial
change is made to the individual’s detriment in the individual’s working
conditions.

4 (1) If a transfer scheme contains provision for the transfer of rights, powers,
30duties and liabilities relating to an individual’s contract of employment, it
may include provision with respect to the individual’s eligibility to become
a member of a pension scheme by virtue of employment with the CAA.

(2) The transfer scheme may include provision with respect to rights of, or
rights or liabilities in respect of, the individual under—

(a) 35a pension scheme of which the individual may become a member by
virtue of employment with the CAA, or

(b) a pension scheme of which the individual is a member by virtue of
employment immediately before the transfer.

(3) In this paragraph “pension scheme” includes a scheme made under section
401 of the Superannuation Act 1972 (superannuation schemes as respects civil
servants etc).

Civil servants treated as employed under a contract of employment etc

5 (1) This Schedule applies with the following modifications in relation to
employment in the civil service of the Crown on terms which do not
45constitute a contract of employment.

Civil Aviation BillPage 114

(2) Where an individual holds such employment—

employment,

(b) the terms of the employment in the civil service of the Crown are to
5be treated as the terms of that contract, and

(c) the reference in paragraph 3 to dismissal is to be treated as a
reference to termination of the employment in the civil service of the
Crown.

Certificate

6 10A certificate issued by the Secretary of State that any property, rights,
powers, duties or liabilities have been transferred to the CAA under a
transfer scheme is conclusive evidence of the transfer.

Validity

7 A transfer under a transfer scheme does not affect the validity of anything
15done by or in relation to the Crown before the transfer takes effect.

Continuity

8 (1) A transfer scheme may provide for things done by or in relation to the
Crown for the purposes of or in connection with anything transferred under
a transfer scheme to be—

(a) 20treated as done by or in relation to the CAA or its members or
employees, or

(b) continued by or in relation to the CAA or its members or employees.

(2) A transfer scheme may, in particular—

(a) make provision about the continuation of legal proceedings, and

(b) 25make provision for references to the Crown in documents to be
treated as references to the CAA.
