UK - An employment appeal tribunal is set to open the floodgates for hundreds of claims by part-time workers for pension rights, a leading lawyer says.
Part-timers have been required to bring claims within six months of leaving their employer. But the new ruling extends the deadline to any time while they remain with a subsequent employer and up to six months after leaving it.
The latest ruling is part of test cases surrounding Preston – a part-time worker who successfully claimed indirect discrimination against Wolverhampton Healthcare NHS after she was not allowed to join the NHS Staff Pension Scheme.
