Age discrimination, redundancy payments and length of service

Sargeant, Malcolm ORCID logoORCID: (2009) Age discrimination, redundancy payments and length of service. Modern Law Review, 72 (4) . pp. 628-634. ISSN 0026-7961 [Article] (doi:10.1111/j.1468-2230.2009.00760.x)


This note discusses three cases which have considered objective justification for the apparent contradiction between rewarding age and length of service in redundancy payments and the need not to discriminate on the grounds of age. It considers the relevance of cases from the European Court of Justice about whether there can be a general exception to the need to justify using the criterion of length of service, or seniority, in equal pay cases.
