This report relates to 1 case(s)
Simpson v British Timken Ltd  ET/1200143/98 (0 other reports)
In Simpson v British Timken Ltd a Bedford employment tribunal (Chair: K Underwood) has decided to make a reference to the European Court of Justice as to whether the upper age limit of 65 on the right to a statutory redundancy payment is contrary to EC law.
Mrs Simpson was dismissed when she was age 67. She was unable to bring a claim for a redundancy payment because of the exclusion in the Employment Rights Act 1996 in respect of employees age 65 and over.
