This presentation will educate employers about the risks associated with downsizing and provide a list of best practices to follow to help ensure that their companies are legally compliant.

Topics will include:

  • Layoffs and furloughs
  • The WARN Act
  • Reductions in salaries/work hours of exempt employees
  • Tips for drafting severance agreements
  • Compliance with the OWBPA
  • Hidden risks involved with downsizing and restructuring
