United Kingdom: Report On Employer Practices Relating to Age

The Department for Work and Pensions, in conjunction with the Department of Trade and Industry, has issued "Survey of employers’ policies, practices and preferences" (Research Report 325), which explores the extent to which current employment policies and practices accord with equal opportunity with respect to age.

The report provides findings from a quantitative survey of around 2000 employers in Great Britain, and was designed as a baseline to evaluate the effects of the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations that take effect in 2006. It provides information on practices relating to equal opportunities, pay and benefits, retirement, recruitment, appraisal, training, promotion and redundancy as well as attitudes and awareness.
