This line manager briefing looks at the law and best practice on retirement after the abolition of the default retirement age on 6 April 2011. It guides line managers on whether or not compulsory retirement is permissible, voluntary retirement, and managing employees where no compulsory retirement is in place, including managing declining performance.
This line manager briefing is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation for training purposes, which should be used in conjunction with the briefing. The briefing and PowerPoint presentation can be adapted for use, subject to the XpertHR terms and conditions of use.
