AnnotationThe purpose of the report is to analyse the problems confronting older workers (aged 45 and over) in the labour market, and to define the techniques and methods which are likely to help in their placement when they are `too old to get a new job' and `too young to retire'. The report attempts to delineate measures or techniques which will achieve equal placement opportunity for qualified older workers, and to suggest measures which will make less qualified workers fully competitive in the labour market. One conclusion is that employment services for older clients should not be compartmentalised, but helped by the mainstream service, albeit with some special services to overcome specific problems encountered by the older person. The report is based on an intensive study of problems and practices in the US, and surveys made through personal visits to OECD member countries. (RH).
