This report relates to 1 case(s)
Homer v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police  IRLR 601 SC (1 other report)
The Supreme Court sent the case back to the employment tribunal to decide whether or not the employer's actions were justified as a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim. The employment tribunal decided that the employer's actions were not justified (Homer v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police ET/1803238/2007).
In Homer v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police  IRLR 601 SC, the Supreme Court held that an employer's policy that its highest grade was open only to employees holding a law degree indirectly discriminated on the grounds of age against those close to retirement.
