The Pitfalls of Layoffs

If you need to layoff employees, make sure the criteria you use is both consistent and business-related. There is a huge potential for accusations of discrimination when laying off employees.

Also, note the differences between a ‘lay-off’ and ‘termination’.

A termination is a specific action against a specific employee. The position will be filled again.
