BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd v McDowell

Employment – Discrimination. The Employment Appeal Tribunal partly allowed the employer's appeal against a decision that its cap on a redundancy scheme had been discriminatory on the grounds of age, whereby payments would not be available for those aged 65 and over, who had an immediate entitlement to an occupational pension. The employment tribunal had failed to demonstrate a holistic approach to its assessment of the means adopted by the employer to achieve the various legitimate aims in the present case.
