ECJ rules on pension discrimination

This report relates to 6 case(s)

The European Court of Justice has handed down its rulings in six cases on issues relating to sex equality and occupational pension schemes in light of the decision in Barber v Guardian Royal Exchange Assurance Group EOR32A. Points of general importance made are that part-time workers may have a right to membership of occupational pension schemes retrospective to 1976, and that employers can reduce benefits once they have been equalised.
