Ted Hollis Shares Insight for SHRM Series on What Employers Need to Consider When Planning Layoffs

Media Mention

Ted Hollis, a Quarles & Brady Labor & Employment partner based in the firm’s Indianapolis office, provided perspective for a three-part series of articles on SHRM about factors employers need to consider when planning for layoffs.

The first article outlines common mistakes made by employers when conducting layoffs and how to avoid them. The second article covers steps employers can take to limit potential liability for layoffs, and the third article addresses the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act and state "mini-WARN" requirements.

Hollis, who is a source for all three articles, summarized the importance of proper planning by employers in the third article:

"It's no secret that the economy is facing significant headwinds, and circumstances may get substantially worse before they get better," Hollis said. "Unfortunately, many employers will likely need to implement layoffs to meet business challenges. By beginning to plan sooner, rather than later, employers can maximize their flexibility, have time to carefully think through and implement layoff planning, meet any applicable notice requirements, and avoid legal liabilities."
