This section has no associated Policy Notes

2.A.4.—(1) Subject to paragraphs (2) to (6), the number of days of a member’s pensionable service in part-time employment for a period is calculated by multiplying the total hours of employment during the period by 7, and dividing the result by the number of hours of employment per week for a comparable whole-time employment.

(2) If the part-time employment is for a specified number of sessions per week, subject to paragraphs (3) to (6)—

(a)paragraph (1) does not apply; and

(b)the number of days of the member’s pensionable service in the part-time employment for the period is calculated by multiplying the number of sessions of employment during the period by 7, and dividing the result by the number of sessions per week of the length of the specified sessions for a comparable whole-time employment.

(3) If during the period for which a part-time employment is held there is an alteration—

(a)in the case of an employment to which paragraph (1) applies, in the number of hours of employment per week for a comparable whole-time employment; or

(b)in the case of an employment to which paragraph (2) applies, in the number of specified sessions per week or the length of those sessions for a comparable whole-time employment,

separate calculations must be made under paragraph (1) or, as the case may be, paragraph (2) for the periods before and after the alteration.

(4) If, apart from this paragraph, a member’s pensionable service in respect of the part-time employments held for a period, calculated in accordance with paragraph (1) or (2), would exceed that period, the excess is ignored.

(5) Paragraphs (1) and (2) do not apply for the purposes of regulation 2.A.3(3) (meaning of “pensionable service”), and for those purposes part-time employments held concurrently are treated as a single employment.

(6) Temporary additional sessions are to be ignored in calculating a member’s pensionable service in a part-time employment.
