Employment contract question
Aug 16th, 2012 at 7:45am

I've been employed by my current employer for nine years.  I was having a look at my employment contract recently and noticed there was a clause in it which says that my employment will terminate on my 60th birthday (which is about 8 years away).  I do plan to continue working there for as long as I can, beyond 60.

I presume this was written before the recent age-related discrimination laws, so would this clause now be rendered unenforceable? And if so, what's the proper name of the relevant act?

In case it makes a difference, I live in Scotland but am employed by a company registered in England.
