(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend regulation 16B of the Teachers (Compensation for Premature Retirement and Redundancy) (Scotland) Regulations 1996.
Regulation 16B of those Regulations provides for discretionary compensation payable to teachers whose employment ceases because of redundancy or in the interests of the efficient exercise of the employer’s functions but who are not then eligible for early payment of pension benefits. The compensation takes the form of a lump sum calculated by reference to length of qualifying employment and the amount of a week’s pay (within certain limits) less the amount of any compensation received under regulation 16 (additional compensation in certain cases of redundancy). These Regulations amend regulation 16B so that the amount of compensation is reduced also by any redundancy payment to which the teacher is entitled under Part XI of the Employment Rights Act 1996.
