UK abolishes forced retirement at 65

LONDON. January 13. KAZINFORM The British government says employers will no longer be allowed to force employees to retire at age 65 unless they can justify the policy; Kazinform refers to China Daily.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills said Thursday that the new policy will be fully effective on October 1. Workers over 65 will still be subject to the same dismissal procedures as other employees if their performance is unsatisfactory.

Previously, employers could compel workers to retire at 65 regardless of performance; Kazinform cites China Daily.
