Lay-offs are terminations undertaken by organizations to
remove positions when organizations need to maintain profitability during high
competition or when revenues decline.
Organizations should carry out the lay-offs in a dignified
and respectful manner. The employer must inform the employees in person,
explain why the decision has been arrived at, which should be based on their
performance, avoid trivial matters and be direct. Additionally, employers
should explain benefits continuation or continued support that the employee
will receive, address any of their concerns and make sure they sign the
necessary documents. Furthermore, it is of more importance that the meeting be
formal, respectful, and kind.
