LAYOFF/REDUCTION IN FORCE
Layoffs can happen due to reasons such as:
- Shortage of work or money;
- Elimination of a position;
- Changes in duties or the organization; or
- An employee being restored (e.g., promoted employee).
Employees who are not permanent are laid off before permanent employees. Permanent employees are selected for lay off based on seniority.
Permanent employees who are laid off have reemployment rights.
See the Division of Human Resource Management's Layoff Information page for more information on layoffs.
