AGE
It is unlawful to discriminate against employees, job seekers and trainees because of their age. To facilitate this the law:

>> Removed upper age limits on unfair dismissal and redundancy.

>>
Introduced a national default retirement age of 65, making compulsory retirement below 65 unlawful unless objectively justified.

>>
Gave all employees the right to request to work beyond 65 or any other retirement age set by the company.
