Dangers of mass layoffs: Protect your company from lawsuits
Seemingly every week since the summer, a high-profile employer has been reducing headcount ahead of an anticipated recession.
In a recent interview with HRD America’s John Corrigan, Davis Goldman Associate Lee Paris explains that while termination is inevitable in business, there are legal dangers associated with mass layoffs, especially if they’re conducted too quickly.
“It’s important to control your messaging,” Lee says. “You can feel when there’s rumblings of issues. If you have to do mass layoffs, do it one time. Plan for it and talk to your employees. You don’t want them to fear they could be next. If your employees aren’t focused, that’s going to hurt your bottom line.”
