Saul Margo represents successful part-time judges
The Employment Tribunal has held that lay members of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Tribunal who are ticketed to chair hearings in the First-tier Tribunal carry out work that is “broadly similar” to the work of judges in the First-tier Tribunal Tax Chamber.
This case is part of the long-running part-time judges litigation and it is the first time that a “judge” who is not legally qualified has been found to have a judicial comparator for the purposes of the Part-time Workers Regulations.
The result means that the claimants and other current office holders will receive a pension and other financial benefits associated with full-time employment in their jurisdiction.
