No. It does not. You should make sure, however that your "general release" complies with all provisions, if appropriate, of the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act. Don't just take a general release out of a form book and use it. Missing language under some circumstances can void the release. I always urge my clients to run documents past me *before* they use them.
