Linnea Keldusild, 'Retirement under the Age Equality Legislation: The Heyday Challenge' (2009) 30 Business Law Review, Issue 1, pp. 2–4


This article examines the age discrimination issues raised by the Heyday Group and their subsequent referral to the European Court of Justice. It looks at the employment law surrounding the UK’s mandatory retirement age under the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 (SI 2006/1031) and the background to Heyday’s legal challenge before outlining the Opinion of the Advocate General and the implications for employers if the challenge succeeds.
