Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority v Currie EATS/0033/05

Reports relating to this case:

  • Retirement age: No jurisdiction to hear unfair dismissal claim of employee over 65

    17 February 2006

    In Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority v Currie, the EAT holds that the employment tribunal had erred in finding that the employee had a retirement age of 70 simply because this was the age at which his predecessor had retired. No express oral term had been created through mention at the employee's job interview of his predecessor's retirement age.
