SKU: RIFWEB-7771
Class Location: Webinar

Class Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Instructor: Michelle Pinsky

As COVID-19 continues to impact the economy in unprecedented ways, companies that have scaled back or shut down operations are bracing for what the next few months will bring, and what this means for their workforce. While the hope is that most workforce measures will be temporary - whether that’s furlough, short-term closures, hiring freezes etc. - given the scale and fluidity of the pandemic, other longer-term measures may become necessary over time.

Even though these current circumstances are extraordinary, employers remain subject to important compliance obligations when considering permanent layoffs. Although a reduction in force (RIF) often can improve a company’s financial picture, there can be serious legal and financial consequences if it is not properly conceptualized, designed and implemented. In this webinar, we explore key considerations for employers looking to make permanent reductions in force, including:

Pre RIF

  • Identify business reason, goals and objectives
  • Selection Process for RIF
  • Severance Package Determination
During RIF
  • Employee Communication Process
After RIF
  • Employee Engagement
