English title: Older Worker in the Labour Market in Poland: 40+? 50+? Or only „a plus”?

Author(s): Justyna Stypińska -

Language: Polish

Type: Journal article

Year: 2015


The article presents the process of social construction of old age in the labour market in Poland, which manifests itself through different age distinctions, such as chronological, social, psychological or cognitive age. The analysis of 30 in-depth interviews with employers in Malopolska region from small, medium and large enterprises, as well as expert interviews with representatives of labour market institutions comprises empirical material to formulate an answer to a question about the consequence of age signi?ers for the situation of an individual in employment. Moreover, the article illustrates the functioning of some mechanism of exclusion of older people from labour market, which despite the fact that efforts are being made in order to increase the effectiveness of the anti-discrimination legislation in Poland, are still particularly prominent in certain sectors of economy.
