Reduction In Force Law

A reduction in force (“RIF”) is the term used whenever an employer permanently terminates a portion of its workforce. An example of this would be if a company decided to remove an entire department. As you might expect, a wide scale RIF could create legal risks for a company if they don’t have the appropriate protections in place. Working with an attorney with experience in reduction in force law will help minimize your legal risks and help you create ways to reduce the stress on your company’s remaining workforce.

At Halpern & Scrom, we counsel clients during stressful workforce reductions to ensure that the procedures being employed fulfill the requirements of state and federal laws, such as the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act and the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA).

If your company is considering a reduction in force, get the legal advice and assistance you need to maintain compliance from a licensed attorney. Contact Halpern & Scrom today for all matters related to workforce reduction law.
