Seldon: the End of the Road for Compulsory Retirement Age?

Mayer Brown Legal Update
The long awaited decision from the Supreme Court in the case of Seldon v Clarkson Wright and Jakes has resulted in Mr Seldon (a partner in the law firm, CWJ, forced to retire at 65) losing his appeal. It is not quite the end of the road for Mr Seldon as the case has been remitted to the Tribunal to determine one final point. However, there is no doubt that this decision will create a significant challenge for employers seeking to justify a compulsory retirement age.
