The article discusses various court cases related to personnel management in Great Britain. The Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) ruled in Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families v Fletcher that a school cannot rely on the nine-year European Union (EU) rule as objective justification. In Royal Bank of Scotland plc v Harrison, EAT held that disruption to childcare was unexpected despite warning. The court held that in Birgit Bartsch v Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte (BSH) Altersfürsorge GmbH age laws cannot be applied retrospectively.
