In Lloyd-Briden v Worthing College EAT/0065/07, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that, for claims based on events that took place before age discrimination legislation came into force on 1 October 2006, employment tribunals do not have to disregard the bar on persons over 65 claiming unfair dismissal.

Mr Lloyd-Briden was a cleaner at Worthing College who was dismissed on 6 January 2006, when he was 82 years old.
