Age exclusion appeal remitted

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Harvest Town Circle Ltd v Rutherford the EAT has allowed an appeal against a finding that the exclusion of employees age 65 and over from the right not to be unfairly dismissed or to receive a redundancy payment is indirectly discriminatory against men and contrary to Article 141 of the EU Treaty.

John Rutherford was informed that he was being dismissed on grounds of redundancy in September 1998.
