This work remains the only text on the market that deals with the intersection of pension and employment law issues, thereby ensuring a timesaving and purposeful mode of practice.

The work is organised into seven distinct parts dealing respectively, after a comprehensive overview of pensions provision in the UK, with the obligations of employers; discrimination; employment contracts; employer's powers; consultation; TUPE; and the cessation of employment.

The new edition is fully updated to include:

  • New cases across all the seven parts of the work and their impact on practice and procedure
  • Impact of Brexit on pension provision in the UK
  • FCA guidance on employers providing financial information to employees
  • Expanded chapter dealing with whether third party trust rights fall within TUPE

There are new chapters on:

  • Disability discrimination and pensions
  • Changing pensions after a TUPE transfer
