The default retirement age is being phased out today.
This means if you didn't receive notice from your employer before 6 April 2011, you can’t be made to retire using the default retirement age of 65.
Your employer can only make you retire if this can be objectively justified in the particular circumstances.
If you feel your employer is treating you unfairly due to your age, you can now challenge this at an employment tribunal.
