Employment law cases

Bailey v R&R Plant (Peterborough) Ltd EAT/0370/10

The Court of Appeal has dismissed the appeal against this EAT decision that, when an employer was informing an employee of the right to request not to retire under the repealed statutory default retirement procedures, it was required to cite para.5 of sch.6 to the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006. However, the Court of Appeal did say that there was no requirement on the employer to inform the employee of the requirements of a valid request (R&R Plant (Peterborough) Ltd v Bailey [2012] IRLR 503 CA).
