Your Views on the Default Retirement Age

Now that the Government has confirmed that the default retirement age is being phased out, employers will need to decide whether to retain a specific retirement age (referred to as an employer justified retirement age) or not.

The article Managing without the Default Retirement Age has further information on the transitional arrangements, and includes a useful flowchart.

We would also be grateful if you could take a few moments to answer the following questions.   This will help us understand where employers are in relation to the abolition of default retirement age, and assist us in providing further advice on this issue.
