continuous service

Continuous service is the uninterrupted duration of employment an employee has with a single employer.

Continuous service refers to the length of time an employee has been continuously employed by the same company. This includes the time from the day they started working until the present, without any significant gaps or breaks in employment. It's important for calculating entitlements like annual leave, sick leave, long service leave and redundancy pay, as these often depend on the length of service.
