Eversheds has published a survey about how employers have responded to, and been affected by, the abolition of the default retirement age (DRA) since it was phased out by the Goverment two years ago. The research revealed that 56% of employers said that the repeal of the DRA has led to a rise in the number of employees staying on past the age of 65 or normal pension age.

10 Jul 2012 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment
A survey carried out by Eversheds about employers' preparation for automatic enrolment has revealed that the majority are confident they will be ready by their staging date. Half of respondents predicted that the cost of compliance will be up to 10% of their payroll and similar numbers expressed concern over the administrative burden caused by automatic enrolment. Over half of respondents admitted that their organisation had not, as yet, prepared for the new worker protection provisions which came into effect from 1 July.

1 Oct 2007 United Kingdom Legislation, Equality
Employers say that laws to stamp out age discrimination in the workplace have not been effective, according to a new study from Eversheds.
