Does the employer have to individually negegotiate a severance offer under the older workers benefit protection act? Can they offer a seperation agreement without offering "compensation over what is entitled to"?

The OWBPA has certain procedural requirements that apply to older workers. However, the Act does not specifically provide that an employee must be given additional benefits beyond that which is being given to younger employees. Of course, this does not preclude an employer from offering additional benefits.
