Question:

We have a plant manager who is not in our future plans. He is in his late 50s and has been with the company for about 10 years. We would like to terminate without cause. How much time in lieu of notice would you recommend? What about severance? Is he entitled to severance above and beyond the reasonable notice period? We would extend his benefits through the reasonable notice period, but do we also have to cover the severance period?
