The UK population is ageing rapidly. While age discrimination laws are seen as having broad potential to address the 'ageing challenge' and achieve instrumental and intrinsic objectives in the context of employment, it is unclear what impact they are having in practice. This monograph addresses two overarching research questions in the employment field: How are UK age discrimination laws operating in practice? How (if at all) could UK age discrimination laws be improved? A reflexive law theoretical standpoint is employed to investigate these issues, applying a mixed methods research design that engages qualitative, quantitative, doctrinal and comparative elements. This book demonstrates the substantial limitations of the Equality Act 2010 (UK) for achieving instrumental and intrinsic objectives. Drawing on qualitative expert interviews, statistical analysis and organisational case studies, it illustrates the failure of age discrimination laws to achieve attitudinal change in the UK, and reveals the limited prevalence of proactive measures to support older workers. Integrating doctrinal analysis, comparative analysis of Finnish law, and the Delphi method, it proposes targeted legal and policy changes to address demographic change, and offers an agenda for reform that may increase the impact of age discrimination laws, and enable them to respond effectively to demographic ageing.

What role should older workers play in our future work force, when the retirement of the baby boomers, starting about 2010, will make tight labor markets commonplace. This unprecedented demographic shift calls for a fundamental rethinking about the work force of the future. Employer attitudes and policies must change if older workers are to remain in the work force longer. This report recommends a "pro-work" agenda for employers, policymakers, and olders in 6 areas: getting the financial incentives right; replacing stereotypes about older workers; the training imperative; rethinking the org. of work; getting older workers into new jobs: and a strong and flexible safety net.

Challenges of Active Ageing brings together academics working throughout Europe from different disciplines including law, industrial relations, human resource management and occupational psychology to explore and debate the challenges of the ‘Active Ageing’ agenda for equality law and management practice. Also including shorter contributions from law, human resource management, trade union and other practitioners, this book aims to fully reflect how organizations can adjust their practices to respond to the challenge of an aging population and extended working lives.

The Government has spent over £800 million since 1998 on helping over-50s find work. Of the 2.7 million people over 50 and under the state pension age, who are not working, between 700,000 and 1 million would like to work, and, of these, some 200,000 are actively seeking employment. Government initiatives include the New Deal 50 plus, which provides access to a Personal Adviser for over 50s seeking work as well as financial incentives; the Age Positive campaign which encourages an an end to age discrimination; and the PRIME Initiative for over-50s interested in self-employment. The report includes the following recommendations: Jobcentre Plus and the Learning and Skills Council should eliminate duplication by harmonising their contracting with local service providers. Better use should be made of performance targets, for example. Jobcentre Plus should develop performance measures to indicate improvements in employability of those who have participated in programmes but are not yet ready for work. All major employment programmes should be evaluated to determine their net economic effect, and their continuing value for money.

This fascinating book brings together an extraordinarily diverse collection of insights, from a wide range of experts. A broad overview is created by the foreword, from Jumbo Klercq. This sets the scene for the subsequent chapters which examine more specific approaches and ways of tackling age diversity and ageing in the workplace. A key contribution, by Sarah Harper, analyses the research and evidence on factors which impact on older workers. This is complemented by an exploration of older workers’ attitudes to work based on primary research undertaken by Stephen McNair and Mat Flynn. Chiva and Manthorpe also include examples of innovative practice in working with individuals, employers and intermediaries and feature contributions from researchers in the UK, France, Poland, Spain and Norway. Older Workers in Europe is ideal for students of gerontology, social policy, sociology and human resource management. It will also be of interest to policy makers and professionals working in the fields of employment and guidance, policy, economics, labour force development and research.
