The article reports on the issue of the retirement process set out in the anti-age discrimination laws in Great Britain. The focus on retirement in many of the cases that have reached tribunals so far shows that the government has misjudged the public mood, says Freda Line, diversity adviser at the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development. She has called for the removal of the national default retirement age. Concerns about the legality of long service awards, and other service-related benefits, have led to calls for changes to the age regulations.
