Big news for older Jersey employees: age has now been added to the anti-discrimination laws.
That’s right – the BBC news has just reported that the isle of Jersey, officially known as the Bailiwick of Jersey, a Crown dependency of the United Kingdom, has just passed legislation which means that “employers would now need to justify retiring an employee before the pensionable age, which is currently 65.
From September 2018, employers have to justify why they need their employees to retire at any age, including after the social security pension age.”
BTW: If you live or work in New Jersey, one of the 50 states of the US, you are already covered by state law.
“That’s right – don’t worry!”
