A recent journal article provides some guidance for assessing mandatory retirement measures:

  • the specific economic sector;
  • the availability of a pension;
  • the impact of the mandatory retirement measure on the right to work and earn a livelihood;
  • the importance of consent to the measure; and
  • the particular age chosen.
