If you change job and have to sign a new contract make sure that length of service continues. If you have worked for a company for x years and move to another part of it your length of service would not be changed to 0, nor should it if you make an internal move after TUPE.
Pensions, once you sign a new contract you will have to leave the LGPS and join the company scheme and the LGPS can become a deferred pension. If you then come back to the LGPS at some future date you just rejoin and previous contributions are taken into account. that is my understanding of the way it works and how it was exlpained to me.
Green book says
So if you tuped then continuity of service is protected.14.3 Where an employee is transferred to an organisation not
covered by the Redundancy Payments (Continuity of
Employment in Local Government etc) (Modification) Order
1999, continuity of service is protected under the TUPE
Regulations where there is a TUPE transfer. However, if that
employee returns voluntarily to local government service
continuity is broken. Where an employee returns in such
circumstances, without a break between employments, all
previous continuous service will be recognised for the purposes
of calculation of entitlements to annual leave, occupational
maternity leave/pay and occupational sick pay. This is subject to
the return to service being within five years of the original
Note: This aggreement applies to all employees who have returned to
local government service since 1st April 1997 however the calculation
of the resulting benefits, such as additional leave, will only take effect
as and from 1st April 2002.
Then if you with in the same company and they in effect tupe you back across with in 5 years then continuity of service is protected.
But if you tupe across but then choose to go work for LA then continuity of service is not protected.
