Peckham v Magnox Limited

This case is a reminder that, when justifying age discrimination, evidence that there are no less discriminatory alternatives is important to show proportionality.



Ms S Thornton v Le Maitre

A Tribunal dismissed a claim of age discrimination was dismissed after holding that, because of uncertainty about the Claimant's real age, the employer could not have known their age when terminating her.



Was it age discrimination for a Finnish law to tax pension income at a higher rate than earned income?

Khan v Adidas UK Ltd

The phrase "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" was not age discrimination (nor was it religion or belief discrimination).

Terraneo v Whitbread Group Plc

A failure to investigate a Breakfast Supervisor's complaints of age discrimination was, in itself, age discrimination.

Fennell v Foot Anstey LLP

The EAT says that it was not age discrimination to demote a poor performing partner in a law firm.

Peters v Rock Chemicals Ltd

Various references to an individual's age during a process to dismiss him were age discrimination.

Lees v Imperial College

Did additional "pension strain cost" influence a decision not to make someone redundant?

Dove v Brown & Newirth Ltd

Calling a 50-something year old employee "Gramps" was banter but was also age discrimination.

Cockram v Air Products Plc

The EAT found an error in the ET's reasoning when looking at justification, so remitted the case for rehearing.
