ABSTRACT
The article looks at the options available to British employers concerning the benefits for older employees. The author says employers could simply avoid offering such benefits to all employees, not just those over the age of 65. Or they could introduce a flexible benefits regime, whereby employees choose those that are more appropriate to them. Alternatively, employers could simply choose not to employ those over 65, while taking care in doing so not to contravene the regulations in some other way.
