Age of retirement

06 Apr 2011

Regulations abolishing the Default Retirement Age will come into force on 6 April 2011

This means that, from this date, employers will no longer be able to give notice of compulsory retirement and employees will have the right to continue in employment should they wish to do so. Staff who are 65 before 1 October 2011 will be unaffected by the change.

The University is currently reviewing policies and procedure relating to retirement and flexible working and looking at the advice and guidance available to individuals to help inform their decision making. Further details relating to this will be made available in due course.
