As the global economy becomes more competitive, employers must  continually streamline their operations to improve efficiencies, reduce costs, and remain competitive. 

Our labor and employment team has worked with employers in numerous industries across the country in planning and executing workforce reductions of all sizes in a way that achieves their strategic goals, while minimizing the possibility of litigation.  We can help employers at every step, including:

  • Compliance with WARN Act and state plant closing requirements
  • Handling "effects bargaining" and other union contractual issues caused by closing facilities
  • Minimizing the possibility of adverse impact claims through drafting of lawful reduction-in-force selection programs
  • Creating stay-bonus and incentive plans and severance packages
  • Analyzing and handling employee benefit issues
  • Crafting effective communication plans with employees, including those employees who are expected to do more with less
  • Managing state and federal oversight agency issues.
