Today’s economic crisis will require many employers to take quick action to reduce labor costs through layoffs, furloughs, and similar cost-cutting measures. Done wrong, these measures could lead to litigation that would undo all of the savings in labor costs.
In this webinar, we will address some key issues to avoid errors that could lead to costly litigation:
- Do we have to give a notice under the WARN Act?
- How do we avoid discrimination claims in deciding who to lay off?
- What are the rules on paying employees who are furloughed?
- Can we reduce employees’ pay without running afoul of the wage hour laws?
