A piece by Kate Devlin in today’s Times, not in the online edition:
Pension alert for women in online divorce
Women will have to tick a box to confirm that they have considered their husband’s pension pot before they can obtain an online divorce, in an attempt to stop them from losing out on millions of pounds.
The “behavioural nudge” will be introduced as soon as possible, Penny Mordaunt, the women and equalities minister, will say today. Ministers will also consult on changing a law that gives women only three months to decide whether to bring a sexual harassment or workplace discrimination case.
The government further intends to review the enforcement of equal pay legislation and begin a consultation on paid leave for carers. A £2million fund will be used to teach primary school children about different career options.

Only a third of divorcing couples include pensions when they divide their assets, according to the government. Under the reforms, anyone using the online system to divorce will see information about including pensions in any settlement. They will then be asked to say that they have considered the idea. [J4MB: Will only the person filing for divorce see the “information”? Probably. Women file for 70% of divorces.]
