It’s no secret Canada’s workforce is aging — rapidly. The average retirement age is now 63, and more than ever people are working beyond the age of 65 (and 70!). This demographic shift provides challenges and opportunities to employers. While older workers may have more experience and skill than their younger colleagues, they are also more likely to become disabled and require job-related accommodation.

Topics to be discussed include:

• How the end of mandatory retirement is impacting employers in Canada
• When an employer can legally differentiate on the basis of age
• How far an employer must go in accommodating an older worker
• Strategies to maximize productivity in an aging workforce
• Best practices for managing generational diversity in the workplace
