‘Retire at 67!’

In a resounding 7-0 decision, the High Court of Justice on Thursday put to rest possibly the most significant age discrimination issue in decades, ruling against a petition and deciding that mandatory retirement at age 67 does not discriminate against the elderly.

Had the petition succeeded, employers across the country would suddenly have to decide employees’ status on a case-bycase functionality basis. Since it has failed, the hopes of those elderly around the age of 67 to beat mandatory retirement are essentially over, unless there is an unexpected major change of approach by the Knesset.
