Age is an increasingly important factor in individuals’ decisions, employers’ recruitment policies and official support measures. Directly or indirectly, age affects decisions to begin studying, the likelihood of becoming employed or remaining unemployed for a long period, and the nature of official support measures. Middle-aged or older people have difficulty in finding relatively permanent employment after losing a job, because employers tend to recruit younger applicants. Owing to stereotypes that associate study with youth, middle-aged people are not as keen as young people to begin studying; they maintain that the older one is, the more difficult it is to learn new things.

For example, the opportunities to evade social security contributions for certain types of part-time work could be reduced or removed. An example of procedural regulation would be to give more rights to employee representatives (work councils) if the employer wants to make fixed-term contracts with new staff. Further, many of the new patterns of employment do not fit with the present system of social security, which is largely based on the concept of the standard employment relationship and the male breadwinner family.
