Default retirement age: We need your views

07 January 2010 #Employment

As we reported back in October, the Government has commenced consultation on the default retirement age.


The Government is now seeking, by 1 February 2010, information from employers on the following issues:


  • The operation of the default retirement age in practice;
  • The reasons that businesses use mandatory retirement ages;
  • The impact on businesses, individuals and the economy of raising or removing the default retirement age;
  • The experience of businesses operating without a default retirement age;
  • How any costs of raising or removing the default retirement age could be mitigated and benefits realised.

We would love to know your views on this.  Please leave your comments on our HR Blog as we intend to collate any feedback and submit this to the Government by the above deadline.
