Ageing and Employment Policies: France 2014

Working Better with Age

People today are living longer than ever before, while birth rates are dropping in the majority of OECD countries. In such demographics, public social expenditures require to be adequate and sustainable in the long term. Older workers play a crucial role in the labour market. Now that legal retirement ages are rising, older workers will work longer and employers will have to retain them. But those older workers who have lost their job have experienced long term-unemployment and low probabilities to return to work. What can countries do to help? How can they give older people better work incentives and opportunities? How can they promote age diversity in firms? This report offers analysis and assessment on what the best policies are for fostering employability, job mobility and labour demand at an older age in France.

Hide / Show Abstract

The French population is ageing steadily, even though fertility is higher than the average for most OECD countries. This chapter describes the magnitude of the demographic challenge. It then goes on to discuss the reforms pursued over the past decade to promote the employment of older workers and it offers a summary assessment of the extent to which France has followed the OECD recommendations from the 2005 report, Ageing and Employment Policies: France.
