COVID-19 Comeback Plan: Conducting Reductions in Force Post-COVID-19

Labor & Employment partner David Burton outlines key questions that employers should ask themselves prior to conducting a reduction in force, including:

  • “Will my decision have a disparate impact on various protected classes?”
  • “If I received Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds, could a reduction in force affect my loan forgiveness?” 
  • “How should I handle my reduction in force so that I can reduce the likelihood of Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) -related claims?”
  • “Will my reduction in force trigger any thresholds related to the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act?”
