retirement | statutory default retirement procedures | notification of right to request not to retire

The Court of Appeal has held that, when the employer was informing the employee of the right to request not to retire under the repealed statutory default retirement procedures, it was required to cite para.5 of sch.6 to the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 (SI 2006/1031). However, the Court of Appeal said that there was no requirement on the employer to inform the employee of the requirements of a valid request.
