Challenge to age discrimination/retirement age law receives a setback

In a previous bulletin we reported that the organisation Heyday had challenged the mandatory requirement procedures in the age discrimination legislation.

Whilst such an opinion does not bind a judgement on the ECJ it would be persuasive.
