Guidance Notes for Lay-Off And Short-Time Working
These Lay-off and Short-time Working Guidance Notes provide information for employers on laying-off employees and placing them on short-time working. They can be used in conjunction with the other documents in the lay-off and short-time working subfolder.
Lay-offs and short-time working are alternative actions to redundancies, and are often used by employers to attempt to mitigate the financial difficulties they are faced with. Laying-off means temporarily not providing employees with work, and short-time working means a reduction in hours. It should be noted that both lay-offs and short-time are temporary measures and should not be used where redundancy is inevitable.
These Lay-off and Short-time Working Guidance Notes are in open format.
