No More Automatic Retirement Age

This has been in planning for some time, but the final draft regulations have been published and we've had an update from our lawyers Lupton Fawcett. Here's a summary of the new regulations from April 2011: + employers will no longer be able to issue employees with notices of intended retirement based on reaching the default retirement age of 65 + it will not amount to age discrimination to provide insurance benefits or related financial services, for example private medical cover or life insurance, to the under 65s whilst not providing them to the over 65s + retirement based on the default retirement age will no longer be a fair reason for dismissal when considering claims of unfair dismissal + Unless an employer can objectively justify the retirement age used, forced retirement at 65 or over is also likely to amount to age discrimination
