Case in Point : Defence v Cannock and others  ICR 918
There are traditionally 2 approaches to pension compensation the 'simplified approach' and 'substantial loss approach'. The guidelines suggest that the substantial loss approach might be used if the claimant is unlikely to ever find another job, or a job with comparable pension benefits (or higher pay which compensates for this). It might also be used if the claimant has not yet found new employment, but is expected to do so.
The employment tribunal then needs to value all losses to retirement and beyond, before reducing the total loss by the percentage chance the claimant would not have continued to retirement in the lost career (under the principles set out in Ministry of Defence v Cannock and others  ICR 918).
