Yes, but the important ingredient for the 30+ service agreement/ contract is that the officer waives a good portion of his pension to be allowed to be re employed. On this basis the officer does not receive pension and wages from the same employed, i.e MPS in this case.
The only "pension" received during this form of employment is a replace
ment for lost housing allowance, so the home office somehow justify this payment in lieu during lawful contract period. The remainder of my pension is withheld. £1000 per month or more.
My approach to ACAS has been with a view to an employment tribunal
1. Breach of verbal promise to extend employment to 31.12.2014
2. Indirect age discrimination. I am now 61 yrs old to be replaced by younger officers( with no expertise in my field)
3. Having been given conflicting reasons for termination( nothing to my detriment) but told contract illegal therefore cannot continue employment. I ask the question on what grounds do they withhold my pension at the end of seven year contract 06.01.2013 - 31.03.2014 if contract is illegal.
There may well be hundreds of officers in the UK in the same or similar position.
I have been given nothing to reply to
It is two days now since JGM ducked out from answering my question.
Please advise as to how this is now to proceed or return my money.
With the greatest of respect, the initial question you asked turned into a different question. I do not deal with discrimination issues hence I opted out so that another expert could assist you.
Unfortunately, I suspect the tone of your recent posts may have discouraged other experts from taking up your questions.
I will refer you to customer services.
I have no wish to wait indefinitely.
I will point out that "with respect" JGM did simply duck out and then wants to try and defend his action with a lame statement.
If you are unable to find someone more competent within 72 hours from now - ie1300 on Thursday 10th July 2014 then I should be offered a full refund.
Please read my previous email.
You have been unable to locate anyone to answer my question.
I think that it is now time to refund my £36.
Thank you for trying.
