Retirement - line manager training

Author: Lynda Macdonald


This training guide looks at the law and best practice on retirement following the abolition of the default retirement age. It guides line managers on whether compulsory retirement is permissible, voluntary retirement, and managing employees where no compulsory retirement is in place, including managing declining performance.

"Retirement" in this context means that the employee chooses to give up working. Whether or not the individual is entitled to a pension is a separate matter.
