It is important because as I've stated above this law actually encourages age discrimination. As I'm sure you will agree, discrimination of any description is intolerable in a truly democratic country such as ours.
This very discriminatory law should be repealed immediately because it really belongs in a totalitarian state.
The law states quite clearly that an employer can retire any employee 65yrs and over without any explanation or reason. There is no appeal available to the employee and therefore it leaves itself wideopen to discrimination misuse.
I really cannot believe how a law of this nature has been allowed entry into the statute books of a democratic country. It flys in the face of government policy in relation to working after 65 yrs and encourages employers to abuse the privilege that this law allows them.
In anticipation of a favourable responce.
