New law

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by Outstanding, Aug 2, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. New law on age discrimination will come into force on 1 October 2006.


    This law will make it illegal to treat someone unfairly in employment and vocational training because of their age, without a good reason. It is good news as it will give you more rights and opportunities at work.

    Employers will not be able to enforce compulsory retirement ages below the age of 65 (unless they have specific justifiable reasons for a lower age).

    If your employer has a compulsory retirement age, you will have the legal right to ask to work beyond it, and your employer must formally consider your request.

    Not sure what the SP Pol line will be, but I bet they have excluded us cos they can!!
  2. Why don't you just start the on discussion in the one place? Or did you forget you posted it twice in two different threads? That's possibly altzheimers and you really shouldn't be serving any more huh?
  3. Oops sorry can they be merged?
  4. MOD (Armed Forces) are excluded from this legislation. This one comes around every couple of years. If you want more time, then MPGS and gate duties beckon....

    Get outside, there is a life that doesn't involve serving the Queen! Or Princess Tony, for that matter.
  5. next thing you will want is a union like all the other forces.
    get real fella.
