Early retirement?

Interesting piece in AccountancyLive, noting that the Supreme Court in the UK has ruled in favor of mandatory retirement at 65 and, in the case at hand, allowing a law firm to retire one of its partners. To quote from the article: The UK Supreme Court has made a landmark ruling that allows companies to dismiss older workers at 65 to make way for more entry-level jobs and younger staff scaling the career ladder. . . The case comes at a time of high youth unemployment and an ageing population who feel they need to work longer to support poorly-performing pension plans.
