Employers encouraged to join consulation on age legislation


The EFA (Employers’ Forum on Age) is encouraging employers to respond to the government’s consultation paper Towards Equality and Diversity on discrimination legislation.

The first period of consultation is under way and will last 12 weeks, the second is likely to be later in 2002. The EFA will be holding workshops on the proposals, and will be runnning two half-day events with the CIPD.

The UK is due to introduce new legislation by 2006. Areas of particular concern in the current proposals include the possibility that mandatory retirement ages could be unlawful, and the impliations for redundancy packages.
