As long as you did not sign a new employment contract and the terms/conditions remain the same, then your employment is continuous. This means your length and continuity of service and any other rights are all preserved. Therefore, if you were entitled to time off in lieu under your previous contract, then this right will continue. If the employer denies you this right and it is specifically contained in your original contract,then the employer will be in breach of contract.
You should dig out your original employment contract and show your employer. Explain the above to them.

I hope that helps. Please click accept on my answer.
Was the original condition right for the previous employer to deny me redudnacy instead of the Tupe?
I would have rather had the option of redundancy instead of Tupe but there was none. The work load with this new company is immense and it seems they are taking advantage. Am I stuck in this Tupe with no way out?
