Labor Market

Swedish Teacher Refuses to Quit at 67

Published tisdag 9 juni 2009 kl 09.39

A Swedish teacher is challenging the labor market practice of forcing employees to stop working after the age of 67 - claiming this conflicts with the new law against labor market discrimination of the elderly.

The custom now is that an employee has the right to work full time another 2 years after the retirement age of 65, but that part time work has to be negotiated as well as continuing after those two years.

However, local authorities have informed the teacher that he is to stop working after 67.

The Swedish ombudsman for discrimination is looking into the case
