Whether due to economic factors or changes in workforce requirements, most employers will eventually have to lay off employees. When planning a reduction in force, employers should develop a sound rationale for which employees are affected, take proactive steps to manage internal and external perceptions, and ensure that state and federal legal requirements are met. In this webinar, Lon Williams, JD, and Mike Coffey, SPHR, will address the legal and practical issues related to reductions in force, including compliance with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act.
