Scottish Ministers v Docherty and Another: EAT 9 Jul 2009

EAT EQUAL PAY ACT: Part-Time Pensions
Part-time pensions. NHS employee did not join a voluntary scheme after having become eligible to do so. Circumstances in which Tribunal was found to have erred in law, not having addressed (a) the question of whether the claimant would have joined the scheme in 1988 if she had been eligible to do so; and (b) whether the claimant’s ignorance of her entitlement to join the scheme after 1991 (from which time she was eligible to do so) was attributable to a policy or campaign of the dissemination of misinformation about her rights.
