All About Age and Pensions: what you need to know

12 December 2016

Do you know what is unlawful age discrimination, and what isn't, when it comes to pension provision for your workforce?

1 October 2016 marked the 10 year anniversary of the introduction of age discrimination legislation in the UK. That wasn't the only important age anniversary this year. 1 December 2016 will mark 10 years since the main age discrimination provisions relating to pensions came into force.

Despite the legislation having been with us for a decade, there are still challenging age discrimination issues around the treatment of employees and pension scheme members. Make sure you're aware of them.

In this interactive, accessible and jargon-free webinar our All About Age experts Liz Wood and Ruth Ormston from the Combined Human Resources Team will provide:

  • a refresher on what the law says about age discrimination and pension provision;
  • an overview of some of the trickier areas and potential pitfalls;
  • a reminder on what the law says around insured benefits; and
  • practical steps employers/trustees can take to ensure compliance.
