Degree requirement for promotion not age discrimination against employee close to retirement

This report relates to 1 case(s)

Homer v Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police [2010] IRLR 619 CA

The Court of Appeal has held that the requirement that an employee who was close to retirement complete a law degree before he could be promoted was not indirect age discrimination. The particular disadvantage that the employee suffered was not the result of age discrimination but of the employee's forthcoming retirement.
