Public Sector pensions and age discrimination

The Government is developing proposals to address age discrimination in public sector pension schemes such as the NHS and Teachers’ schemes, caused by the 2015 public sector pension scheme reforms.

Unlawful age discrimination was established in the 2018 McCloud Court of Appeal judgement in relation to the Judicial and Firefighters’ pension schemes in connection with the 2015 pension scheme reforms. The case related to the fact that, when the 2015 schemes were introduced, workers within ten years of their normal pension age were allowed to remain in the original schemes, while younger workers were moved into the new 2015 schemes.
