Reductions in Force in Employment Law, Second Edition provides a comprehensive understanding of the key employment and employee benefit considerations that arise in a reduction in force. The material in this soup-to-nuts volume is presented in logical order, from the preliminary issues that arise when planning a workforce reduction, to its implementation, and to the issues arising in its wake. This treatise encompasses a wealth of information, including: careful analyses of discrimination law issues; the often complex disclosure and other issues attendant to releases of ADEA claims; ERISA and non-ERISA benefit plan issues; tax considerations, including an examination of golden parachute penalties; and litigation trends related to severance benefits and the amendment and termination of benefit plans used in the reduction-in-force context.
