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.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Personnel and Organisation, grade: 1,0, Midwestern State University (Wichita Falls, Texas, USA), course: Organizational Behavior, language: English, comment: 19 Quellen wurden verwendet., abstract: Extending work lives has become part of a wider cross-national trend. Due to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, mandatory retirement ages in the United States have been largely eliminated. Additionally, Social Security regulations have been re-written to encourage delay of labor force withdrawal, and to reduce financial incentives for early retirement. According to a survey report from the Watson Wyatt consulting firm, it is expected that the workforce in the United States will become increasingly older. The survey concludes that 44 percent of those employees who are 50 years or older plan to retire after 65. The majority of the respondents (54%) stated that they will work for at least three more years than previously expected. Consequently, employers will be faced with numerous challenges. Families of older workers, their younger co-workers, as well as middle-age workers in today's multigenerational workforce are being affected. As such, the aging workforce will have impacts on the policies and practices of workplaces in the nonprofit, for-profit, and public sectors, and each individual employer is being challenged by the question of how to meet the requirements of their changing workforce. Besides impacts in the corporate environment, the nation's productivity, economic growth and global competitiveness are also being challenged. This paper seeks to investigate the impact of delayed retirement of workers within the United States. At first, the change in the age profile in the U.S. is investigated to highlight the reason for the aging workforce. Second, the reasons for older workers remaining in the workforce are shown. The next chapter demonstrates the impacts of an aging workforce.

This edited collection draws together papers delivered at a symposium on New Frontiers in Empirical Labour Law Research held at the University of Cambridge in April 2014. It contains contributions from established and emerging experts across a range of disciplines (including employment relations, industrial psychology, sociology, economics and political science) to consider four broad themes: the case for empiricism in labour law; the potential for mixed methods; methodological possibilities and insights from other disciplines; and practical challenges and words of caution for those conducting empirical research. This collection seeks to cultivate confidence and competence in empirical methods among both established and young labour law scholars, through an intergenerational and interdisciplinary 'lessons learned' dialogue. It contributes to the broader debate regarding empirical research methods in labour law, and casts light on how empirical research can be conducted in highly contested fields to enhance labour law policy-making. This collection aims to inspire labour lawyers to embark upon new forms of empirical research, both to enrich their existing research projects, and to ask new research questions. It offers the first stage of a collaborative and interdisciplinary dialogue on empirical labour law research, to emphasise the importance of collaboration and intergenerational mentoring in building empirical capacity.
