We have a few workers who are past 65 and we need to ask them to take their retirement due to an overstaffing in the department.( I am not sure why they are still working past our normal retirement age as I have just come into the business).

I am very aware of the new age discrimination legislation coming in to force in October and have been charged with the task of getting these workers to take retirement before this date.

I would like to do it in as sypathetic, fair manner as possible. Does anyone have any comments, suggestions ?

Thank you
T Holden
