What are the implications of living longer for productive activity? What is the relationship between work
and leisure? How are employers going to respond to predicted labor shortages? What are the demographic
implications for a multigenerational workforce? Historical patterns of work and retirement need to be
reexamined from an individual, employer, and societal perspective. Multiple pressures including shifting
demographics, increasing labor demand, the changing nature of work, financing retirement, and the
increasing cost of social support programs are changing expectations; but the impact on employment
remains uncertain. Aging workforce issues are particularly complex because of the current regulatory and
legal environment, productivity demands, and existing human resource policies and practices. This course
examines labor market dynamics, employer practices, work/leisure preference patterns, economic security
issues, and Federal policy as it impacts employment.
At the end of this course students will be able to:
Appreciate the characteristics of normal, successful aging.
Understand the legal and social policy background against which the U.S. labor force is aging.
