Following the judgement of the Employment Appeal Tribunal on the use of Regulation A19, received on 8.7.2015, an application for permission to appeal was lodged and subsequently granted by the Court of Appeal.
The appeal hearing will start on 31.1.2017 and is scheduled to last for three days.
Chief Superintendent Tim Jackson, National Secretary of the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales, said:
“An Employment Tribunal considered all of the issues in this case in considerable depth over the course of a 25-day hearing, before reaching a unanimous decision in favour of all the officers who made claims after being subjected to compulsory retirement.
“This case raises important issues concerning age discrimination, affecting not only police officers but the public as a whole.
“The Police Superintendents’ Association continues to support its members who were affected by the A19 exercise.”
It is expected that judgement in this case will be reserved.
