Chancery Division: Pensionable Salary

The High Court has held (London Borough of Newham v Skingle & The Pensions Ombudsman), on an appeal from the Pensions Ombudsman, that pensionable salary for local government employees does not include overtime payments.

The point (which is summarised in the one sentence above) is short but important, as it applies to a wide range of local government and possibly, other public service, employees.
