Retirement age scrapped

Published:  04 May, 2011

Retirement age has been scrapped. From 6 April employers will no longer be able to compulsorily retire employees using the default retirement age (DRA) unless the default age can be objectively justified.

For employees currently under notice of retirement using the DRA, these will continue through to completion. Employers who have staff nearing retirement age will need to know about the changes that have come into effect.
