Exclusions and qualifications: Phased implementation did not override normal retiring age
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Barclays Bank plc v O'Brien and others  IRLR 580 CA (0 other reports)
Employees who were compelled to retire between the ages of 60 and 65 were not entitled to complain of unfair dismissal, because a normal retiring age of 60 applied to those in their position, holds the Court of Appeal in Barclays Bank plc v O'Brien and others. The employer's modification, to a limited extent, of its policy of retirement at 60 was aimed at alleviating hardship for employees aged over 55. This amounted only to a special exception which did not nullify the normal retiring age.
