  6. 6. Reasons of low labour market participation of older age groups in Poland• Legal determinants: – Attainment of retirement age within the statutory pension scheme (60 and 65 years); – Exclusion of some professions from the statutory pension scheme (e.g.. miners, policemen); – Legal protection of employment for people in pre-retirement age.• Political determinants: – Policy counteracting unemployment – decreasing labour supply by granting access to pre-retirement pensions and allowances; – Lack of continuity – pension scheme reform launched in 1999; limitation of access to the pre-retirement schemes introduced in 2009.• Labour environment determinants: – Favourable pension-wage relation, especially in case of low-paid jobs; – Possibility of obtaining pension and wage simultaneously (this also includes working in the shadow economy), which may have positive impact on incomes; – Decreasing the risk of loss of income (difficult situation on the labour market - relatively high unemployment rate) by retiringearly retirement – Requirements and threats related to the labour environment – competition of the youth, development of new technologies, new ways of human resources management; – Lack of age-management in the enterprises – older workers do not participate in training schemes, are assigned to tasks for which are over-educated, are not promoted – they are „frozen” in their daily routine tasks.• Individual and institutional determinants: – Family and individual conditions – a need to assure care for family members and to provide mutual support – limited institutional childcare and care of dependent adults; – Health condition – limited health prevention.
