ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the implication of the decision of an employment tribunal in the case of Bloxham v. Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer for employers in Great Britain. The decision has cast light on the questions whether employers' employment practices are discriminatory and whether they can be objectively justified. The tribunal concluded Bloxham had suffered less favourable treatment on the grounds of his age, which was directly discriminatory unless it could be objectively justified.
