POKU-ACHEAMPONG, J.A.: The facts of this appeal are straightforward. The matter revolves essentially around the date of birth of the Respondent in the appeal who is Plaintiff in the trial court.
It is interesting to note that in this country there have often been doubts about the correct age or date of birth of workers in some public service organisations, companies and institutions. There are amusing anecdotes about this phenomenon and there is what has come to be known as the real age of a person and the workplace age.
It is therefore not surprising that an issue related to the correct age of a worker otherwise described as a loyal and dedicated worker with an unblemished record of 30 years’ service in the Appellant company should come up to this court.
The appeal emanates from a judgment of the Obuasi High court delivered on 21 March, 2019. In this opinion the Plaintiff in the trial court shall be referred to simply as the Respondent and the Defendant as the Appellant.
