This report relates to 1 case(s)
Seldon v Clarkson Wright & Jakes  IRLR 267 EAT (2 other reports)
The case went on to the Supreme Court, which held that the employment tribunal was entitled to find that the firm's aims were capable of being legitimate (Seldon v Clarkson Wright & Jakes (a partnership)  IRLR 590 SC). However, the case was sent back to the employment tribunal to consider the proportionality of a retirement specifically at 65 (Seldon v Clarkson Wright & Jakes ET/1100275/2007).
This week's case of the week, provided by Speechly Bircham, covers compulsory retirement.
