NYP LGPS Employer Discretion Policy 2

Posted on

Policy Statement
All North Yorkshire Police Personnel must adhere to this policy. This policy applies to Police Staff who are members of the Local Government Scheme (LGPS) or ex Police Staff members of North Yorkshire Police who have deferred benefits within the LGPS.

The LGPS is a statutory pension scheme, which governs the way in which the Police Staff pension scheme is administered. There are, however, some areas of the scheme that are decided by employers. These are collectively referred to as ‘Employers Discretions’.

This document incorporates North Yorkshire Police (NYP) policies under the following Regulations as at 1 April 2014. For ease of reference, each discretion in this document is marked ‘Ref ‘E’ and ‘Ref ‘F’ to correspond with the relevant Regulation.

Ref ‘E’ The Local Government (Early Termination of Employment) (Discretionary Compensation) (England and Wales) Regulations 2006 (as amended)

Ref ‘F’ The Local Government (Early Termination of Employment) (Discretionary Compensation) (England and Wales) Regulations 2000 (as amended)

The following is a statement of North Yorkshire Police’s (NYP) policy on the exercise of discretions under the above two Regulations as required by those Regulations. The policy represents clear guidance on the exercise of any particular discretion. The policies confer no contractual rights. The policy in force at the time of a relevant event occurring will be the one that is applied. Previous iterations of this policy are held with Corporate HR.
