Some experts can continue working until 70, says Cabinet

Civil servants working in areas at risk of personnel shortages are to be allowed to postpone their retirements until the age of 70, says Government House.
 

The idea was to curb shortages of personnel in key areas and to support the country’s upcoming “fully-fledged ageing society” status, said a source.

 

The Cabinet on Tuesday approved in principle an amendment to an Office of the Civil Service Commission (OCSC) regulation that usually requires employees to retire at 60. 

 

A first-stage extension would allow the officials in question to continue working for an extra four years and a second extension for a further three years. The maximum extension period must not exceed 10 years or allow for people over 70 to still be working, according to the OCSC’s proposal.

 

The Cabinet gave its approval in principle to the amendment, meaning it might require further changes and a final approval before being implemented.

 

It also ordered that the amendment only apply to those fields at risk of personnel shortages and must be academic experts of Level 9-10 or be in the “senior” “special skill” officials who have served in those rare fields for at least one year.

 

The positions the over-60s are allowed to work in could be their old jobs or other existing positions – but their new work cannot be in new jobs that have just specially created for them, the cabinet stipulated.

 As in the western world 

raising of pension age if you still have it and desire it 

and it is an option, all good,

common-sense prevails.

I find it amazing that the "cabinet", with half its members missing as they are now "senators", continue to pass laws and make up rules until the very last minute! This one will enable senior civil servants to continue their corrupt practices for many more years. No matter how long they keep working for extra money and perks, they can't take it with them when they die!

So called 'Experts' at anything are few and far between in Thailand; Senior Civil Servants are as good as useless when it comes to being expert at anything other than being firmly attached to the gravy train and to say they can stay 'at work' until they are 70 is a joke !

I believe that in the US Civil Service there is no mandatory retirement age for federal employment.

And management is required under law to make reasonable possible accommodation if an elderly employee experiences aging issues adverse to their work environment that allows the employee to continue employment, albeit at a different job and/or pay scale.

I widh they'd change the law so that senators and MPs had to retire at 60. That would be most of the last (current??) lot on the scrapheap!
