Three different people have all told me that mandatory retirement is 60 and either that a work permit cannot be done or that it's very unusual for it to be done. It just dawned on me that I was sixty years and nine months old when my most recent work permit was issued. This leads me to wonder about a couple of things. 1) Is the mandatory retirement regulation only just now being enforced? 2) Could my teaching license, which did not expire on my 60th birthday and runs until I'm over 64, be grandfathering me and extending my retirement age to 64? I'm asking because I have a few job offers. The agent that has two of the jobs flatly says that there can be no work permit. The third job offer is a school trying to do a direct hire for the first time. They've never done a WP. They're certainly eager to do so, but they'll be in uncharted territory. I might be asked to help guide them. All thoughts are welcome.
