HM Treasury published revised ‘Fair Deal for staff pensions’ guidance, commonly referred to as new Fair Deal, in October 2013. The guidance sets out how pensions are to be dealt with when staff are compulsorily transferred from the public sector. In addition, the guidance extends to retenders of contracts involving compulsory transfers of staff who were previously transferred out of the public sector under the old Fair Deal.
