Lithuania like other European countries is experiencing demographic process of aging. The situation when the older population is growing and outnumbers the younger population strongly influences, among other things, the labour market. The necessity to overcome the negative effects posed by the aging process, particularly by ensuring wide and active participation of older people in the labour market, is determined not only at the national but also at the European and international levels. Therefore the aim of this article is the formation and reflection of the legal discourse of aging in international and European legal sources, identifying the legal measures, used to eliminate or at least mitigate the threats of the aging population to the stability of the labour market.
