Hogan Lovells set to host seminar focusing on retirement issues

On 25 February 2014, Hogan Lovells is set to hold a late afternoon seminar on retirement issues. The event is aimed at clients involved in HR and pensions work.

Recent research from Saga has revealed a 33.5 per cent rise in the number of over-65s in employment over the last three years. This development presents both HR and pension challenges in managing an ageing workforce.

Speakers from the law firm’s employment and pensions teams will consider a variety of topics, including the practical implications of the abolition of the statutory default retirement age, associated age discrimination issues and whether the proposed extension of the right to request flexible working to all employees will result in more applications from older workers.
