In these challenging economic times, layoffs, corporate reorganizations and even company shutdowns are becoming more commonplace. This reality, coupled with the unique employment laws regulating these matters, requires that employers understand how to navigate the legal issues related to these corporate changes.

The Topics Covered Will Include:

  • Strategies and considerations for implementing workforce reductions, including advance notice requirements under the federal and local WARN Acts
  • Updating employee release agreements and special requirements for obtaining such agreements in group terminations
  • Preparing for lawsuits in the wake of group terminations, including wage/hour claims under the FLSA and the risk of personal liability of directors, officers, and shareholders for unpaid wages
  • Protecting confidential business information and the ability to enforce non-competition and non-solicitation agreements against employees subject to layoff
