    You have the right to take industrial action and you can’t be legally forced to stay at, or go back to, work (unless a ballot wasn’t organised properly). If you take industrial action, you’ll probably have broken (be ‘in breach of’) your employment contract and your employer: is unlikely to pay for the work you didn’t do when you took industrial action can sue you for breaking your contract (this doesn’t happen often) Taking industrial action doesn’t usually mean that your employer will say you’ve broken your period of continuous employment with them. This begins when you start working for your employer and ends on the day your employer uses to calculate your length of service. However, if you take industrial action, your employer will reduce your length of service with them by the number of days you were on strike. This is important when working out your pension and things like statutory redundancy pay.
