Exclusion of persons entitled to an AOW pension from transition payment does not constitute age discrimination
The Supreme Court has determined that the provision that persons entitled to an AOW (General Old Age Pensions Act) pension are not entitled to a transition payment if the termination or non-continuation of the employment agreement takes place in connection with the employee's reaching the AOW pension age or after the employee has already reached the AOW pension age, is not in violation of Directive 2000/78/EC. According to the Supreme Court this provision therefore does not constitute age discrimination.
