Towards ‘Ageless’ Employment Policies — a Union’s Experience of the Extension of the Mandatory Retirement Age

Nobuyuki Shintani

Chapter 11 in Human Resource Management in Ageing Societies, 2008, pp 187-202 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract This paper describes how Japanese labour and management tried to cope with changes in employment conditions brought about by ageing in the workforce. The focus is on the gradual extension of the mandatory retirement age. The aim of achieving ‘ageless’ employment policies is a slight exaggeration. In substance, it implies employment policies that do not discriminate against workers because of their age.
