Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police v Homer [2009] IRLR 262 EAT

This case has since gone to the Supreme Court, which held that a requirement that employees obtain a law degree before they could be promoted to the highest grade was indirect age discrimination (Homer v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police [2012] IRLR 601 SC). However, 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).
