When It Comes to Work, How Old Is Too Old?

A 92-year-old person cuts hay atop a 5-ton tractor each summer, baling winter feed for more than 800 head of
cattle. The rest of the year he herds, corrals, immunizes, and cares for the cattle.

A senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported to work each day well into his
80s, contributing greatly to our understanding of biomarkers, and helping advance laboratory safety measures. An
annual laboratory safety award is now given each year in his honor.

  • How can you help older workers continue to work if they must or choose to do so?
  • Benefits of the Aging Workforce for Employers

> KEP
The useful Citizens Advice Centres provide on line information about rights e.g. to residence permits, pensions, what to do in the case of age discrimination etc. http://www.kep.gov.gr/portal/page/portal/MyNewPortal?lng=us Information is available in English, French and German.


                             What is KEP?

“The Ministry of Interior is sparing no effort in reinforcing and enhancing the Citizen Service Centres (KEP) network. According to Deputy Minister Christos Zois, the aim is to make the centres a virtual one-stop-shop, while providing valuable assistance to citizens and reducing the “red tape” of public administration. The service is appreciated by citizens and successive opinion polls bear witness to this effect. Approximately 60,000 citizens visit KEPs daily, which offer advanced multi-channel systems, helping citizens carry out their affairs with the various departments in the public domain through this seamless suite of integrated channels. Non Greek-speaking foreign nationals who live in Greece may call the multi-lingual call centre 24/7 at “1564,” or visit www.kep.gov.gr to obtain specific information pertaining to their case. Last year, KEPs received the "Good Practice Label 2007" at the EU eGovernment Conference in Lisbon, www.epractice.eu/cases/csckep

The European Employment Observatory provides links to sources of information on employment in Greece, though it will not provide advice on jobs. It also provides reports from SYSDEM and Misep on the situation in the Greek labour market – look for reports by D.Karantinos.
