Court of Appeal judgment in age discrimination case - Reynolds v CLFIS (UK) Ltd [CA] 30.04.15

Liability for age discrimination could only attach to an employer where an individual employee or agent for whose act it was responsible had done an act which satisfied the definition of discrimination. That meant that the individual employee who did the act complained of had himself to have been motivated by the protected characteristic. There was no basis on which that individual's act could be said to be discriminatory on the basis of someone else's motivation.
