Whereas the government wants to encourage older people to work, keep in mind that many companies tend to be sulky these profiles, although very experienced . However, faced with this phenomenon, the government does not intend to exert any constraint on employers. Thereby, Elisabeth Borne simply mentioned an index on the employment of seniors . The goal? “Value good practices and denounce bad ones. » Clearly, combining employment and retirement will be more interesting… But behind this, there is no guarantee that people over 55 can easily fit into a labor market often ruthless.
