Consultation description

This consultation contains proposals which would strengthen the pensions protections that apply when an employee of a Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) employer is compulsorily transferred to the employment of a service provider.

Our proposed amendments to the LGPS Regulations 2013 would, in most cases, give transferred staff a continued right to membership of the LGPS. These changes would bring the LGPS in line with the government’s October 2013 Fair Deal guidance that applies in relation to transfers from central government.
