Reports relating to this case:

  • Normal retiring age: Unilateral lowering of retiring age was ineffective

    Date:
    1 February 1996

    In Bratko v Beloit Walmsley Ltd the EAT holds that an industrial tribunal was wrong to find that an employer's action in unilaterally reducing the age at which employees had to retire to an age below the contractual retiring age established a new "normal retiring age".
