Too old to work?

The Supreme Court will today begin hearing a test case on age discrimination which centres on the case of Leslie Seldon, a solicitor who was forced to retire at 65 because his partnership agreement stated that partners should retire at that age.

Clive Howard, employment lawyer at Russell Jones and Walker, and Adam Marshall, director of policy at the British Chambers of Commerce, discuss the case.
