Greenhoff v Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council - Calculating compensation for loss of pension rights  EAT
Employment Tribunals normally follow approved, albeit non-binding, guidelines (now in their 3rd edition) in assessing compensation for pension loss. The Guidelines suggest alternative approaches.
In this case the EAT found that failure by a tribunal to explain not only what approach it adopted but also why it selected that particular approach rather than other approaches amounts to an error of law. For that reason the EAT has sent this case back for a different tribunal to re-assess compensation for loss of pension rights.
