Since the abolition of the default retirement age in 2011, retirement dismissals have amounted to direct age discrimination unless they can be objectively justified. With one in six people in the UK now over 65, employers need to prepare for a shift towards employees remaining in employment well into their older years.

  • A comprehensive review of recent case law
  • An update in respect of default/ compulsory retirement and succession planning
  • Justifying direct and indirect age discrimination
  • Work related benefits and pension arrangements
  • Performance management and capacity
  • Common exceptions

2 CPD points are available for this course.

  • Comprehensive notes and materials
