Termination, discharge: What are the requirements for notice to employees over the age of 40? Question: We have a current employee who has been
with the company for 8 years in a Director role. We are considering outsourcing the work he does along with all IT work. I know we can go ahead and lay him off due to these business decisions and we would be putting together a separation agreement. My concern is that I read recently that anyone over the age of 40 is to be given the separation agreement at least 21 days in advance of the separation. True? We are concerned because he does have security controls, etc. and if we give him this advance notice - we are not sure what damage he might do to the company.
Response: If an employee is 40 years of age or older,
any separation agreement that seeks to release claims under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) must contain specific language as required by the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA) in order to be a proper, valid and enforceable release (see http://www.eeoc. gov/policy/docs/qanda_severance-agreements.html for specific guidance). You are correct that an employee age 40 and older must be given 21 days to consider a waiver and release agreement, and then an additional seven days once signed (if signed within that time period), to revoke his or her signature and thus the contract itself. There are other requirements that must be satisfied when more than one employee is separating from employment (such as providing information about the ages and positions of employees impacted by a layoff and not impacted by the termination decisions, and a 45-day consideration period), but we assume from the inquiry that only one employee is at issue here (the Director). Note that employers are not required to provide employees under 40 with a specific amount of time to sign a separation agreement and there is no revocation period required in that situation.
As to your concern regarding providing "advance notice" to the subject employee, the 21-day waiting period is solely for purposes of the employee executing the separation agreement. In other words, the employer does not need to give an employee advanced notice as to his or her last day of work. Indeed, the employer can include in the separation agreement that the last day of work is effective immediately requiring him to return all company property, etc. (assuming employment is at-will and no other contract governs the issue) and the employee could still have the 21-day consideration period to decide whether to accept the terms of the separation agreement (albeit the employee would spend this consideration period at home or away from work as he would no longer be employed). For more information on obligations under the OWBPA in severance agreements, please see http://www.eeoc. gov/policy/docs/qanda_severance-agreements.html and we also recommend that the employer consult with local counsel for guidance in drafting a separation agreement (or to at least review what the employer has endeavored to draft itself) to ensure it meets the employer's objectives while remaining compliant with applicable laws.

Here we go again! phones in vehicles.
BION – Believe it or not Takes Center Stage Tornado Preparedness Safety tips for cell phone use in vehicles Preliminary estimates for 2012 by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Association (NOAA) report more than 900 tornadoes—22 of which were “killer tornadoes.” From droughts to floods to temperature extremes, it seems that weather systems are upside down all over the country. January 2012 was an unusually violent month for severe weather, with more than 70 tornadoes reported. Unfortunately, extreme weather is becoming more commonplace: Over the past three years, the United States has averaged more than 1,300 tornadoes.1 Deaths and property damage from tornadoes are not limited to the most severe storms: 109 people were killed in 2011 by storms rated EF3 or lower.2 So what can we do? In a word, PREPARE! Tornado season lasts from March to August, but tornadoes can occur year-round. More than 80 percent of tornados occur between noon and midnight, and one quarter from p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Tornadoes are most likely to occur between EOMoccur – End of4:00 Message 4:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. While tornadoes have been reported in every state, they are most prevalent in the area known as “Tornado Alley,” which includes states located between the Rocky Mountains and Appalachians. Tornado strength is measured on the Enhanced Fujita (EF) Intensity Scale, which correlates damage with wind speed. The scale has six wind-damage levels, as shown on the accompanying chart. Operational EF Scale EF Number 0 1 2 3 4 5
How can you prepare for a tornado? Plan with a PURPOSE Although tornadoes have been reported throughout the United States, some areas are clearly at higher risk than others.

Identify a “safe” room where others can gather during a tornado. In the chain by solutions, wein at MSC Joplin, Missouri, storms of 2011, people survived taking shelter a walk-in cooler. Whatever you designate as your safe believe room, it should be determined in local peoplebefore you need it. Examine your property— both your home and business—and create a plan. A basement location away from all windows is preferable. If there is no local problems. basement, an interior hallway or room on thesolving lowest floor is best. A nearby sturdy building is another option. Once you designate a safe room, consider having it reinforced, if possible, for additional protection.
