Mayor and Burgesses of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets v Wooster

This report relates to 1 case(s)

age discrimination | redundancy | early retirement pension

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that an employer committed direct age discrimination against an employee when it made him redundant at the age of 49 in order to avoid paying an early retirement pension that he would be entitled to if he left employment when he was aged 50 or over.

Mr Wooster, who worked at the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, was seconded as a registered social landlord.
