This paper reviews the evidence of the effects of abolishing or limiting mandatory retirement ages in other countries, the evidence related to the productivity of older workers, and the evidence related to employers' practices with respect to older workers. Its aim was to contribute to the evidence base for the UK Government's decision on whether or not to include a fallback retirement age in its age discrimination legislation.
