Default Retirement Age

Some important news: the Supreme Court has granted permission to appeal in Seldon v Clarkson, Wright & Jakes. The Court of Appeal's judgment suggested that a compulsory retirement age of 65 could be justified for partners in a law firm, and its reasoning provided some comfort to those who are looking at the approaching abolition of the default retirement age (on 1 October 2011) with dread.

For more information on Seldon, see the previous case reports.
