Layoffs & Firings

Layoffs and firings occur when an employer sees the need to terminate a worker or workers for a variety of reasons. Layoffs tend to take place when a corporate budget dictates cutting workers. A layoff is prompted for economic reasons and does not necessarily reflect negatively on the employees affected in the process. Outright firings occur when a worker or workers fail to perform on the job, display improper workplace behavior or otherwise do not meet expectations. Laid off workers tend to be eligible for unemployment compensation. Those impacted by firings, however, may not have access because the termination is generally brought on by a failure to perform working duties properly.
