Dismissal of an employee with a reduced-hours job who reached the statutory retirement age did not constitute unlawful discrimination
The Danish Supreme Court has established that an employer’s dismissal of a disabled employee with a publicly funded reduced-hours job when he reached the mandatory retirement age and the public funding lapsed did not conflict with the Anti-Discrimination Act.
When is a functional impairment a long-term one?
The Danish Western High Court was not satisfied that an employee’s functional impairment at the time of dismissal could be expected to be a long-term one – and for that reason the employee did not have a disability within the meaning of the Danish Anti-Discrimination Act.
We have made it our goal and our vision to always be the best labour and employment lawyers in Denmark.
