Webinar: COVID-19 and Reductions in the Workforce

As a result of the Global Pandemic, some businesses have been severely impacted. Early measures, such as hiring freezes, furloughs, layoffs, wage reductions, reductions in hours of operations and other cost cutting measures may have been implemented.

However, where cost cutting measures are not sufficient to sustain operations, permanent Reductions in Force (RIF) may be unavoidable.

This webinar discusses questions employers should ask before implementing a RIF.
