Seldon v Clarkson Wright & Jakes - Justification of age discrimination  EAT
Solicitor Mr Seldon argued that his Partnership Agreement which required him to retire at age 65 was discriminatory. An employment tribunal concluded that the provision was direct age discrimination, but that it was justified. One aspect of this justification was an assumption that performance tails off at around this age. Mr Seldon appealed, on numerous grounds, and the EHRC also intervened in the case.
