Overwhelmingly strong GB connection entitles UK appointed British Council employee to Civil Service Pension


Re: Jeffery v The British Council UKEAT/0036/16/JOJ

An employee who worked abroad for a British company, under a contract of employment governed by English law (which required a notional deduction for UK tax), and was eligible to a Civil Service Pension was able to show an overwhelmingly strong connection with Great Britain and thus entitled to bring claims under the Employment Rights Act 1996 and the Equality Act 2010.

James Laddie QC was involved in this case.
