Areas of Law / Employment

I have been suffering from repetitive strain injury and I applied to retire on health grounds. However the pension managers say they cannot provide me with a pension forecast because my employers are withholding their consent. They talk about the “sensitive nature” of my request.

You will only be able to retire on the grounds of ill health if your employer agrees that you are too ill to continue. The procedure for this will probably be set out in your employment contract and the rules of your company pension scheme. However the issue may be “sensitive” because you have a potential compensation claim for your injury. I suggest you see a solicitor specialising in personal injury cases to discuss this further.
