Due to speaker illness, this webinar has been moved from Monday 25th January to Tuesday 9th March.
This webinar will 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 which 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 will:
- Look at the background to the pension changes in the 2015 reforms
- Examine the effect of the judgment
- Consider the extent of the present duties on pension scheme administrators and managers in advance of legislative change
- Look at practical examples of problems that arise for police officers, NHS workers, Forces personnel, fire fighters, civil servants and other public sector workers
- Look forward to 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.
**This event will be hosted as a webinar. Participation is free of charge however, advance registration is required. Please note that participants will receive the joining instructions by email prior to the webinar.**
