Chief Constable of West Midlands Police and others v Harrod and others  IRLR 790 EAT
Reports relating to this case:
Age discrimination: An early retirement exercise by police forces did not give rise to unlawful indirect age discrimination
- 28 October 2015
In Chief Constable of West Midlands Police and others v Harrod and others  IRLR 790 EAT, the EAT held that the employment tribunal erred in holding that the indirect age discrimination that arose from the application of reg.A19 of the Police Pensions Regulations 1987 was unjustified.
- 14 July 2015
The Employment Appeal Tribunal has dismissed police officers' claims for indirect discrimination on the ground of age. Police forces, to make costs savings, applied the A19 rule in the Police Pensions Regulations 1987 to retire officers who had accrued a certain minimum pension entitlement that could be achieved only after 30 years' service.
