The law on retirement ages no longer allows for a default retirement age (DRA) and the statutory retirement procedure has been phased out. As there is no longer a DRA employers can only continue to prescribe a compulsory retirement age when they can justify it as a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim. The Department for Business, Information and Skills gives air traffic controllers and police officers as possible examples where having a retirement age could be justified. Simply-docs have created some useful Guidance Notes for Employers: Handling Retirements on this subject.
The package of Retirement Documents also includes a straightforward Retirement Policy and some useful Deeds of Variation that can be used to change out of date retirement clauses in employment contracts.
Retirement Document templates are part of the Employment document folder. Get access to all of these documents for only £35+VAT.
