End of Retirement Notices
Don’t forget that you can no longer issue new notices retiring employees as the legislation allowing employers to retire their employees at the default retirement age has been repealed. Existing notices issued before 6th April can still go ahead providing the procedure has been followed correctly and the employee is 65 or over before the 1st October 2011.Retirements notified on or before 5 April 2011 can continue through to completion provided that:

• the Default Retirement Age (DRA) procedure, as set out in the previous Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006, is followed correctly (including the employee's right to request to stay on is given serious consideration by the employer)
• the person retiring reaches 65 or the normal retirement age (if this is higher) before 1 October 2011. Therefore an employee must be 65 by the 30 September if they are to be retired using the DRA.

Employers can no longer issue notifications of retirement using the DRA after 5 April 2011.
