UK: Make sure you understand the change in law around Retirement Age

If you have employees in the UK and had a default retirement age, please note that the UK is abolishing the default retirement age – which can quickly change situations into an age discrimination issue – which is not fun as the number tribunal claims has been skyrocketing already!
But if you want more detail – I encourage you to click through t the source as it is a good explanation of the change, and how it is being phased in. Plus there is a handbook explaining how employer policies should be changing.
