Age discrimination: Compulsory retirement at age 65 was objectively justified

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Seldon v Clarkson, Wright and Jakes and Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills [2010] IRLR 865 CA, the Court of Appeal held that the employment tribunal did not err in finding the claimant's compulsory retirement at age 65 objectively justified. The policy was a proportionate means of achieving the legitimate aims of encouraging young people to seek employment, through the ability to offer good promotion prospects, and of promoting collegiality in the firm.
