Parker v MDU & MDU Pension & Life Assurance Scheme ET 2301271/2015
Pro rating of part timer’s pension not discrimination
Dr Parker started working for the MDU in 1987 and became a member of its pension scheme on 6 September 1987 (a final salary scheme).
She was an employee of the MDU and a member of the scheme for more than 27 years until she retired in January 2015. For most of that period she worked part-time at varying levels. She was paid the same salary as a full-timer on a pro-rata basis to take account of the fact that she worked fewer hours.
