I would love to catch up with you at one of the many talks I give. If you are going to be at one of my talks, let me know and I will make sure you get extra chocolate! (But I won’t tell you the answers to the quiz!)
I do tribunal audits on employment contracts and handbooks so that the company knows what needs to be updated, how much risk they are at, and whether the documents are really “fit for purpose”. Once they have that information, they can make an informed decision about whether they will be updating their paperwork themselves or outsourcing it (to me hopefully!).
What is the current default retirement age?
Well, there isn’t one. It was abolished in October 2011.
What does that mean for you as an employer?
You can’t avoid managing staff because “they will be retiring next year”. There is no more retirement. People can only resign. So if you have a member of staff who isn’t performing, at any age, you need to manage them!
