Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
Pis there anything in the pension scheme rules that deals with this? Please note I am mobile today so may not be able to reply until later today thanks
Many thanks for your patience. In general, your pension is unaffected by your dismissal, even if it is for gross misconduct. There are rare circumstances when your pension may be affected but that only happens in some public sector jobs and it will be clearly stated in the contract or the pension scheme rules. So it is useful to check these but the general position is that your pension is unaffected as it is a separate thing to your employment and is managed by an outside provider.
