    Which sounds more correct?

    Are they all grammatically possible?

    . From December 2004 on, when I came back to England, I have been employed at Armani Brand.

    . From/Since December 2004 on, when I came back to England, I have been being employed at Armani Brand.

    or

    Since December 2004, when I came back to England, I have been employed by Armani Brand.

    "From December 2004 on" doesn't sound good to me.

    "I have been being employed" is not grammatical.
