Audience: This Notice will be of particular interest to:

  • HR staff involved with departures attracting compensation under the CSCS.

Action: To note the content of the HR Director letter issued on 18 June and the options available under scheme rules following the latest judgement from the Judicial Review.

Timing: Immediate

  1. Please find attached the HR Director letter issued today. The letter sets out that employers can agree exits under former CSCS terms with a last day of service of 15 Sept 2010, and clarifies the position on the Wallis judgement (see EPN269), nuvos members and Approved Early Retirement in premium.
  2. If you have been discussing a planned early exit scheme with your Pension Service Centre (PSC) please contact them directly if you have any urgent queries. Please be aware that PSCs may have to deal with a large number of such queries as a result of the Judicial Review outcome.
  3.  For all non-urgent queries and clarifications about the ruling please contact the Employer Helpdesk as usual.
  4. We will update you with further information as it becomes available.
