Abbot v Condici [2005]

Facts

  • The claimant, having reached the age of 65, opted to terminate both of his current commercial agency agreements, and claimed that his entitlement to remuneration by way of compensation under regulation 17 of the Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993 fell within the scope of the exception to the exception in regulation 18(b)

Issue

  • Was the claimant entitled to compensation?

Decision

  • Yes

Reasoning

  • Regulation 18(b), which allowed an agent to regulation 17 remuneration is he terminated his agency agreement(s) due to age, infirmity or illness, did not require the proof of an illness; reaching 65 was enough to entitle retirement and lawful termination with compensation
