The Supreme Court recognized Thursday the age of 65 as the maximum age that people are physically fit to work, breaking the nearly 30-year precedent that will likely reshape the notion of retirement and impact related industries.
The 13-judge bench reversed an appellate court ruling that ordered the family of a drowning accident victim to be compensated based on the applied age of 60 to determine the indemnity.
The victim’s family, sued a swimming pool operator after they lost their son in August 2015. They had argued the compensation should be based on the assumption that the child would have been able to engage in manual labor until the age of 65.
