The Edinburgh Evening News published an article on 31 July 2013 written by Greg McCracken reporting that "Employers to eager to throw older workers on scrapheap".

The article informs us that "A poll by Age Scotland partner Age UK has revealed nearly a quarter of people in their early 50s are worried they will be forced to leave their homes due to being unable to make their mortgage or rent payments. The subjects of the poll are a demographic traditionally expected to be at the peak of their earning power. Instead fewer than two fifths of those aged 50 plus (38%) were positive about the future."

We are also told that "A key concern for many is keeping or finding a job. Nearly half of all unemployed men and women aged between 50 and 64 have been out of work for more than a year. Meanwhile research shows it is harder for over 50s to get back into the workforce than any other age group. Similarly they are more likely to be made redundant than their younger counterparts."

The intelligent and highly driven legal personnel at Michael Lewin Solicitors could provide robust representation to your company at an employment tribunal hearing if a claim has been issued against you by an employee.

The above-mentioned article goes on to explain "With the state pension age increasing there is an expectation that people will need to work for longer. However this poll suggests people who are approaching later life – still with much to contribute – are anxious they will be the first to go should employers downsize."

It also says "If this is the challenge we need to ensure that organisations value older employees seek to retain their skills and experience. Recruiting the new posts should be an opportunity to take on older workers. In fact we know that many employers say what they value most about older employees is their ability to mentor younger colleagues. With that in mind schemes which encourage such relationships could be put in place in order that both generations reap the benefits."

The article concludes by saying "Furthermore whether we are employers or employees we should regard the potential of older people and our ageing society more generally as positive resource".
