Judges pensions tribunal ruling

16 January 2017

An employment tribunal has today ruled that the government's transitional pension arrangements for judges amount to unlawful age discrimination.

Andy Fittes, General Secretary of the Police Federation of England and Wales, said: “We note the outcome and will now need to look closely at the judgement in detail. We also wait to hear whether there will be an appeal.

"Police officers’ and judges’ pensions are different, so we will need to examine the judgement to see if there are implications for the transitional pension arrangements for police officers.”
