5 Ways to Avoid a Layoff

Career Alley

Difficult economic times often result in major layoffs. That then begs the question, how does the average worker avoid a layoff? In addition to keeping one’s reputation pristine within a company, there are several other ways an employee might avoid a layoff.

Not that layoffs are ever pleasant, but this one is particularly rotten. You are right to be concerned about PR, but it is far more likely that a case like this won't hit the papers (so many layoff stories to choose from!), As if layoffs don't cause their own morale problems.)

I distributed layoff plans without permission, new job says I can’t take a previously okayed trip, and more

Ask A Manager

I found my company’s layoff plans on the copier … and distributed them. That said, I wouldn’t assume that this will change their layoff plans or that it will result in raises.

“I did not pass my Performance Improvement Plan. Is it too late to contest it?”

Sklover Working Wisdom

Yes, it is a fact in almost all states that, if employers can cut down on the number of their employees who collect unemployment benefits, the “rate” of contribution they pay for unemployment insurance coverage for their other employees is reduced, saving them a lot of money. You see, in industries with high or regular layoffs, such as construction, employers must pay more than they do in industries with low or rare layoffs, such as hospitals.
