Posted in Human Resources (HR) Compliance

As this blog has grown over the last few years, I’ve noticed that some readers have missed earlier articles on relevant topics.  Indeed, sometimes they ask why I haven’t written about it before when, in fact, I have. 

Rather than write the same post again, I thought it would be useful, from time to time, to look back at some of those posts for guidance.

Back in May 2008, I discussed how employers should develop a checklist for their separation agreements.  Importantly, there is a law called the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act that is still unfamiliar to many employers.  Check it out and make sure your agreements meet the requirements.
