January 2009
Michael Archer

The Employment Appeal Tribunal gave its judgment on the case of Seldon v Clarkson Wright & Jakes on 19 December 2008. This case concerns the application of the Age Discrimination law to a Partnership where a Partner (Mr Seldon) had been required to retire at 65 by virtue of his Partnership Agreement.

In this article, Michael Archer of Beale and Company Solicitors reviews the EAT's analysis of the arguments presented by the parties both for and against the retirement clause, to see which found favour and which did not.
