(A) that employers should retain all older workers
(B) that all older workers be retained by employers
(C) the retaining by employers of all older workers
(D) employers' retention of all older workers
(E) employers to retain all older workers

My answer is E ,
The verb requiring must be followed by a noun , that leaves us with choices D or E . usage of has shows its in present tense and thus to retain is more acceptable by GMAT english.

The answer is E.

In case of A, requiring IS being followed by a noun. It's a noun clause and not just your plain vanilla proper/common noun. However, the verb in the noun clause has to be an infinitive. The following, thus, will also be acceptable:

...requiring that employers retain all older workers indefinitely...
