Public-sector pension schemes: outsourcing
This practice note considers the issues that arise when employees who are members of public-sector pension schemes transfer to the private sector as part of an outsourcing exercise.
PLEASE NOTE: HM Treasury has published Fair Deal for staff pensions: staff transfer from central government. This sets out the government's revised Fair Deal guidance and confirms the standard practice which the government will follow when its own staff are compulsorily transferred to non-public sector employers. This practice note is being updated to reflect the new guidance. For more information, see Legal update, Public-sector pensions: Fair Deal 2013 published.
