Paul Brown QC, Samantha Broadfoot QC and David Lock QC look at the responsibilities and remedies available to resolve the discrimination issues emerging out of the significant decision of the Court of Appeal in McCloud v Lord Chancellor  EWCA Civ 2844.
McCloud v Lord Chancellor decided that the 2015 reforms to public sector pensions which de facto forced workers from legacy schemes into new schemes (but allowed others to remain in legacy schemes) were unlawful.
The government has published proposals for legislative reform to allow workers to rejoin legacy schemes but has not yet done so, and meanwhile public sector workers are continuing to be affected by the unlawful decision to force them into new (and less generous) schemes.
This webinar considers:
- The background to the pension changes in the 2015 reforms.
- The effect of the judgment.
- The extent of the present duties on pension scheme administrators and managers in advance of legislative change.
- Practical examples of problems that arise for police officers, NHS workers, Forces personnel, fire fighters, civil servants and other public sector workers.
- The shape of the changes the government is proposing for 2022.
It will be of interest to solicitors and others advising public sector pension scheme administrators and managers as well as those advising pension scheme members including police officers, Forces personnel, NHS workers, fire fighters, civil servants and other public sector workers.
