On May 22, 2018, I presented a complimentary webinar called “Conducting Your Next Reduction in Force.” For those who couldn’t attend the live webinar, I’m happy to make it available for you to watch at your convenience.
In the webinar, I discuss:
- Selection Procedures
- Notice Requirements
- Severance Programs
- Union Issues
An important focus is on planning and executing a reduction in force without creating liability. This includes avoiding discrimination based on protected characteristics such as age, race, and sex.
Why You Should Watch “Conducting Your Next Reduction in Force”
Whereas discharging one employee can be problematic, the potential claims arising from a group termination multiply.
If your organization is contemplating separating multiple employees at this same time for related reasons, then you should benefit from this presentation. I discuss some specific steps for the reduction in force from beginning to end. I offer insights on what can go wrong and what your business should do to avoid missteps.
