Reduction in Force / Layoffs

New Jersey Reduction in Force / Layoffs Attorney

While employers have the right to engage in legitimate reductions in force or layoffs due to business necessity or downsizing, employers sometimes attempt to use a reduction in force or layoff to get rid of or terminate an employee for other reasons including unlawful or discriminatory reasons.

There are complex legal rules and principles that can be used to determine whether a termination or firing due to a reduction in force or layoff is being used to cover up an otherwise discriminatory or unlawful termination and whether a person who has been fired as the result of a layoff, downsizing or reduction in force has the basis for a legal claim.
