Korea: Retirement Age of 60 May be Mandatory for Most Companies

The Korean National Assembly, in a move that leaves many of my U.S. and other Western colleagues and clients bewildered by the lack of understanding of the contributions provided by those in their 60s and 70s, has agreed to mandate that the retirement age in Korea, for most companies, be set at, at least, 60 years old.

The revision is meant to protect older workers. Many companies impose retirement ages of 55 and many even impose lower retirement ages.  

The revision will still need to make its way through two committees and, also, reach a vote on the National Assembly floor.
