In Roberts v Aegon, the EAT has held that when calculating compensation for unfair dismissal, loss of earnings and pension loss can be approached differently. Here the employee was unfairly dismissed but immediately obtained new employment with a higher remuneration package. As such she was not entitled to an award for loss of earnings. However, the tribunal awarded compensation for her ongoing pension loss as she was no longer able to participate in a final salary pension scheme and was unlikely to be able to do so again in the future.
