A job is a job people do it every day if you dont like your job move on. sometimes less money is less problems. Always be loyal to your family, your children and yourself. Its a bad time everywhere but there is help. Sooner or later everybody will be back at work somewhere. For those that returned to work good luck stay working god knows we need to. Make the best of everyday. Dont give up find a way

Freudenberg-NOK, the leading producer of advanced sealing and vibration control products, has reached a significant milestone as the company celebrates its 20th anniversary. To commemorate the event, employees throughout its American and international locations are pulling together in these tough economic times to give back to their local communities.
The company has launched the "Your Community Partner" program in each of its locations, as a way for employees to thank their local communities by providing meaningful assistance. During these difficult economic times, many non-profit and community organizations are struggling and need volunteers and financial support more than ever.
"We are fortunate to be a financially sound supplier with a very diverse business portfolio," said Dr. Sohi. "So instead of spending on celebration events, we wanted to give back to our communities in a variety of ways from cleaning the beaches in Malaysia - to helping in homeless shelters in California - to raising funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Canada."

worked for nok for 7 yrs to many. The more you do the more shit you got from the higher ups. They did not ever praise anyone for doing a good job.The only time you heard from the bosses is when you messed up. You try to do a good job and know when there is bad parts but was told to send it anyways. They just wanted to fill their orders knowing they were all bad parts. Nok stands for no one knows no one kares. If you want to get stabbed in the back by gossip and rumores then NOK is the place to be.

Freudenberg-NOK has settled an age discrimination suit filed by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and has agreed to pay $80,000 in damages to the person rejected for a job at its Bristol plant because of the applicant's age.

Sarah O'Hare, vice president of Human Resources for the Michigan-based auto parts manufacturer, could not be reached for comment on Wednesday.

Timothy Poh of Meredith, the person who, according to the EEOC's suit, was discriminated against because of age, also could not be reached.

According to Bryan White, spokesman for the EEOC, the suit was brought against Freudenberg-NOK because they allegedly refused to hire Poh for a controller position at the Bristol plant because of his age.

White said Poh was interviewed for the controller position in the fall of 2006. Poh followed up several times, and, on Jan. 3, 2007, Poh received a call from a Freudenberg representative who allegedly told him that the company was looking for someone "not quite as old with as much experience."

White said the EEOC found that the company had offered the controller position to two younger applicants and eventually hired a younger, less qualified person for the job.

White said the EEOC filed suit in December 2007 in U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire in Concord.

"While this case arose over two years ago, we know that in these difficult economic times age discrimination is an even greater problem," said Spencer H. Lewis, Jr., director of the EEOC's New York District Office.

"The EEOC will continue to vigorously enforce the protections for workers against age discrimination."

The settlement results in an $80,000 payment to Poh for damages and financial loss.

The settlement, which was approved by U.S. District Court Judge Jospeh A. DiClerico, also requires that Freudenberg does not discriminate based on age or further violate the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act by having employees waive or release their rights under the Age Discrimination Employment Act.

The company must also train management on the Age Discrimination Act, the creation of a new anti-discrimination policy and post notice about the settlement.

"The EEOC is pleased that Freudenberg worked cooperatively with us to resolve this case short of a trial," said Markus L. Penzel, EEOC senior trial attorney in Boston. "We believe that the relief provided in the consent decree will help prevent what happened to Mr. Poh from happening to others in the future.

The EEOC is the federal government agency responsible for enforcing the nation's federal anti-discrimination laws in the workplace. Further information about EEOC is available on the agency's website at www.eeoc.gov .
