The TUC and the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development have produced a useful guide for trade unions and HR managers on how to develop good practice around implementing the age regulations.

The guide – Managing Age, a guide to good employment practice - looks at how the new regulations apply in the areas of:

  • retirement 
  • recruitment, selection and promotion 
  • pay, benefits and pensions 
  • appraisal, performance management and training 
  • health and safety 
  • redundancy and termination 
  • harassment and victimisation.

It also includes:

  • guidance on producing an age equality policy 
  • a summary of the law 
  • the Acas fair retirement flowchart 
  • Sources of further information.
