CIPD applauds decision on the Default Retirement Age

CIPD applauds  decision on the Default Retirement Age
The announcement by the Prime Minister that the planned review of the default retirement age will be brought forward by a year to 2010 comes in the nick of time, says Dianah Worman, Diversity Adviser, CIPD:
The economic situation and panic about pension income means maintaining the default retirement age is unsustainable. We never supported its inclusion in the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 because strong demographic evidence made it nonsense. 
In these tough times the Government has no choice but to bring this review forward to help organisations make better use of the talent, skills and knowledge of experienced older employees, but also to help supplement their diminishing pensions.
The introduction of the Equality Bill will help to force through a quicker pace of policy change, which will make a major contribution to help pull UK plc out of the recession.
