Layoffs and Reductions in Force: Preventing Lawsuits and Avoiding Legal Liability

 

Learn best practices to keep in mind when conducting a reduction in force to minimize the risk and cost to your company.

In times of economic uncertainty employers must confront the potential for reductions in force. When conducting reductions in force employers face numerous avenues of liability in executing these plans and are faced with significant risks from employee lawsuits. Employers must consider not only the complex economic intricacies of a reduction in force, but also the wide scope of employment laws that could increase the risks and costs associated with reductions in force. This topic will help you understand some of these legal risks. You will learn what categories of workers these laws protect, how suits are brought and analyzed, and what practices employers can keep in mind when conducting a reduction in force to minimize the risk and cost to the employer.
