Navigating the maze of GMP equalisation

This briefing will focus specifically on managing the legal complexities coming out of the decision in the Llyods Bank case on GMP equalisation. Nearly six months on, the dust may have settled on the Llyods Bank judgement, but certain key questions remain unanswered. Also, complying with the judgement gives rise to a number of legal and practical issues which trustees and scheme sponsors need to consider and address.

Bereavement, grief and work: support and adjustment

“Take as long as you need...”. There is lots of evidence of good practice in the handling of bereavement in the workplace. Work can be therapeutic or a final straw. Every case is different. Length of service, seniority, past record, and the empathy level and influence of a line manager often affect an organisation’s response. So, too, do the circumstances of the death, raising questions about consistency of treatment.
The aim of these workshops is to give HR professionals and managers a space to share their experience and approaches, with a bereavement specialist, against the backdrop of legal responsibilities and a new statutory right to bereavement leave for some parents.
