Chief Constable of West Midlands Police and others v Harrod and others [2015] IRLR 790 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • No indirect age discrimination in retiring longer-serving police officers

    14 July 2015

    The Employment Appeal Tribunal has dismissed police officers' claims for indirect discrimination on the ground of age. Police forces, to make costs savings, applied the A19 rule in the Police Pensions Regulations 1987 to retire officers who had accrued a certain minimum pension entitlement that could be achieved only after 30 years' service.
