EU sources -Older workers on the labour market -May 02, 2013

Eurofound has published a report that focuses on the role of governments and social partners in keeping older workers active on the labour market. Collective bargaining can play a role through provisions in national and sectoral collective agreements that offer the possibility for part-time work beyond retirement age or partial retirement arrangements at company level. Most measures that reduce the total number of hours worked by older workers benefit individuals who might not otherwise be able to stay working. In some cases national policies and social partner initiatives have focused on promoting ‘work ability’ – a concept that combines the ability to continue working because of improved health and enhanced employability through on-going skills development.
