OWBPA Compliance Update for HR Professionals

Learn how to create lawful, enforceable separation agreements that comply with the OWBPA.

Companies must be diligent in assessing their size and organizational structure to ensure a competitive advantage. As a result, employee reductions and terminations occur. This topic will assist companies in understanding the rules and case law surrounding the Older Workers' Benefit and Protection Act (OWBPA). You'll learn about the interaction between OWBPA and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the importance of meeting the OWBPA requirements. To minimize the risk of potential litigation, employers may wish to offer departing employees money or benefits in exchange for a release or waiver of liability for all claims connected with the employment relationship. This material will assist in the understanding of the requirements under OWBPA to avoid potential liability risks.
