Managing a Reduction-in-Force

When your company has decided that a RIF is necessary, we can smooth the transition while helping to reduce the legal risks associated with the process. We can help ensure a systematic, consistent approach to guide your HR personnel and business leaders through the entire process — from development to execution of the RIF — in the most efficient manner possible, including:

  • Pre-reduction-in-force planning (criteria/documents) 
  • Training business managers 
  • Making and documenting selections 
  • HR review of selection decisions 
  • Attorney review with HR 
  • Disparate impact analysis 
  • Disclosure preparation 
  • Preparation for termination meetings 
  • Document collection and retention
