Nine women claim sexual discrimination over airline's former retirement policy
Four former and five serving flight attendants of Cathay Pacific Airways alleged sexual discrimination under the airline's previous retirement policy. The claim alleged the policy, under which men retired at 55 and women at 40, violated the Sex Discrimination Ordinance enacted in 1996. The airline then changed the policy in 1999 to allow women to retire at 55. The claimants, who had joined the company while the former policy was in effect, had their pension entitlements paid out at 40. Nevertheless, their employment was extended for another five years on 12-month temporary contracts. The airline reinstated them to full-time employment in 1999 and they were compensated. 9 women claim they lost retirement benefits under the new arrangement and should be entitled to a full pension calculated continuously from the date they originally joined the airline. On the other hand, lawyer representing Cathay Pacific asked the District Court Judge to dismiss the case of HK$10 million on the grounds that the claimants’ employment had not been continuous.
