Erichsen v Chief Constable of Northumbria Police

Employment – Disability discrimination. The Employment Appeal Tribunal allowed an employee's appeal in part and allowed the employer's a cross appeal concerning an award of pension loss. It held that the employment tribunal had not erred in failing to discount the award of pension loss to take into account the chance the employee would obtain work as a teacher and thereby gain access to a final salary pension scheme again. erred in law in the way in which it calculated the employee's pension loss from the age of 52 to 60; by discounting the employee's pension loss from the age of 60 onwards for accelerated payment, and in grossing up the award of compensation for loss of pension when it had used gross figures for assessing that loss.
