Additional leave as the determinant of retirement timing

07. January 2015

Faced with a rapidly aging labor force, increasing the labor supply of older workers has become an important goal for European countries. Offering additional leave to older workers with the option of withdrawing a contractual pension (contractual early retirement pension AFP) has become a widespread retention measure in Norwegian companies.

The article is published in Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies.
