Reference to Retirement in Termination Notice

CK - Washington.   A small business termi­nated an employee and noted in the notice of ter­mination her eli­gibi­lity for retire­ment bene­fits. This refe­rence consti­tutes age dis­crimi­nation, the German Supreme Court for Employ­ment Matters, Bundesarbeits­gericht, ruled in a deci­sion on July 23, 2015. The docket number is 6 AZR 457/14. Presently, the court has published only a press release which is available online. The notice of termination is void because it violates the non-discrimination statute, §7(1) AGG, the court held in contrast to the lower courts.
