Compulsory retirement still legal

The UK Supreme Court has recently ruled that as long as an organisation can prove a specific public interest justification (such as making it easier to recruit younger employees, being able to promote middle managers and being able to end a worker’s career with dignity), rather than just the commercial interest of the business, it is still legal to force workers to retire at the age of 65.  This is despite the Government’s scrapping of the default retirement age.  More on this story is available from the Daily Telegraph.
