Palo Alto Program
While the worst may be over (we hope), layoffs continue to be one of the most challenging aspects of a human resource professional’s job. Whether emanating from outsourcing, a merger, or an acquisition, or simply from a shift in corporate structure or cost-cutting – or any combination thereof – the elimination of positions and separation of employees means the same thing from a human resource perspective: layoffs. The specter of layoffs, especially mass layoffs, can be daunting. Tension is in the air, uncertainty reigns, morale is in jeopardy, and the threat of legal claims looms. With adequate forethought and planning, however, the challenges presented by layoffs are surmountable. Morrison & Foerster LLP will host a series of briefings focusing on handling layoffs that result from outsourcing and M&A transactions. The program will provide practical steps for any company to take when faced with layoffs.
