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. Read More...

Most gasoline now contains 10 percent ethanol (E10). But, you may see higher ethanol blended gas available for sale – such as 15, 30, 50 or 85 percent ethanol gas – at a gasoline filling station. These higher ethanol blends may even be cheaper than E10, and your consumers may be tempted to buy the higher ethanol content gasoline because of its lower cost.

But, price is no longer the way to choose gasoline safely.  You have to choose the right fuel.

To help the equipment dealer and manufacturing community with this critical issue, OPEI has launched a “Look Before You Pump” campaign to educate and protect consumers from inadvertently mis-fueling their equipment investments.
