Reductions in Force in Employment Law
By Ethan Lipsig, Mary C. Dollarhide, and Brit K. Seifert
This book analyzes the major U.S. employment-related legal issues (and other important considerations) that arise (1) when an employer is planning or preparing for a work force reduction, (2) in implementing a work force reduction, and (3) in the days and weeks following an announcement and rollout of such a business restructuring. In other words, this publication provides step-by-step analysis of reductions in force (RIFs) from an employment law perspective.
