    Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority v Currie EATS/0033/05 (0 other reports)

Key points

In Tarbert (Loch Fyne) Harbour Authority v Currie UKEATS/0033/05/RN, the EAT holds:

  • The employment tribunal had erred in finding that the employee had a retirement age of 70 simply because this was the age at which his predecessor had retired. No express oral term had been created through mention at the employee's job interview of his predecessor's retirement age.
