Pollock & Galbraith assist Solicitors in determining the equitable assessment of pension loss in employment matters. This might be associated with an employment tribunal or when giving assistance in the framing of compromise agreements.
Since the TSO Booklet Compensation for Loss of Pension Rights – Employment Tribunals became outdated, and financial market and pension scheme designs have changed, actuarial input is now regularly sought in high value tribunal cases. John is actively involved in preparing reports on investment conditions, pension loss and grossing up calculations. He has experience of giving oral evidence in hearings across the UK.
Cases involving non-standard schemes, early payment of benefits or age discrimination situations are more complex but our experience has been that our reports are invariably used as a basis for settlement without other experts necessarily becoming involved.
Assistance can also be given with other losses, share related benefits, benefits in kind, death and ill health benefits etc.
