No limit on part-timers' retrospective pension entitlement

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Magorrian and Cunningham v Eastern Health and Social Services Board (11 December 1997) EOR77B, the European Court of Justice holds that the Barber limitation on retrospection does not apply to part-time workers excluded from full occupational pension benefit and that UK legislation which limits entitlement to obtain full membership of an occupational pension scheme to two years prior to commencement of proceedings is contrary to EC law.
