Retiring age of a person who is a time keeper
It appears that clause 2(e) of the aforementioned Act defines a worker as “any person, skilled or unskilled, who works for hire or rewards, but does not include a person who is employed in any managerial, administrative, supervisory or solely clerical capacity.’ The High Court Division found that the function of the time keeper is solely clerical in nature and as such the petitioner is not a worker as per aforementioned definition and therefore, his retirement at the age of 57 years by the impugned order was not illegal.
