This report relates to 1 case(s)

    Clancy v Cannock Chase Technical College and another [2001] IRLR 331 EAT (0 other reports)

Guidelines last updated in 1991 did not provide any yardstick for the computation of compensation for the loss of pension rights in an unfair dismissal case where the employee had been a member of a final-salary public sector pension scheme, holds the EAT in Clancy v Cannock Chase Technical College and another 2.3.01 EAT 265/99. An employment tribunal erred in law in assessing the loss by reference simply to the employer's notional contributions, as recommended by the guidelines, given especially that the scheme yielded not merely an annual pension but a lump sum as well.
