Pensions Lecture – South West Trains comes of age

Tuesday 9 June 2015
6.30pm - 7.30pm
The Law Society, 113 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1PL
£70 + VAT | 1.0 CPD

Wilberforce Chambers invites you to a series of lectures by senior practitioners on technical topics of particular interest to non-contentious pensions lawyers. Wilberforce Chambers has a well-established reputation in the field of pensions law, due in large part to the late Edward Nugee QC, to whose memory these lectures are dedicated. The fields to be covered are section 75, South West Trains agreements, TUPE transfers and pensions flexibility and the barristers speaking have been heavily involved in advising and litigating in these areas, which enables them to share valuable insights into the more difficult issues which arise in practice.

The second lecture in our series is:

South West Trains comes of age: 18 years since South West Trains v Wightman

  • Non-pensionable pay agreements: how far can you go?
  • When might they breach the employer’s duty of good faith?
  • Discussion of recent decisions on non-pensionable pay agreements: IBM, Gleeds, Bradbury v BBC
  • Amending to remove the final salary link
  • The effect of s 91 Pensions Act 1995 on final salary linkage: where next?

 

Speakers:

Michael Furness QC and Edward Sawyer

Cost:
£70 + VAT = £84.00 per lecture, or a discounted rate of £250 + VAT = £300 for all four lectures.
