The interest of the general public and especially in the interest of scientists is it to monitor the ongoing changes in the demographic structure of the population. The demographic structure of the population is associated with aging populations. Aging is the issue that concerns the current labor market situation in every country in the world. The social trend of population aging suggests that currently the most numerous component of the population is the citizens of the 55+ age group. This article deals with the employment of older people on the labor market in selected countries of the European Union. We consider, in the context of demographic developments, it is necessary to address the issue of employment of an older generation that could pass on its long-term work experience to younger generations. The contribution mainly points to a comparison of the current employment of the 55+ population for full and part-time in selected EU countries. To compare this indicator, we have collected data from the European Statistical Office.
