Employer Layoff and Recall Practices
U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (DOLETA), Unemployment Insurance Service
This report on employer layoff and recall practices is part of a continuing effort by the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) to explore the needs of dislocated workers, i.e., those who have been laid off from their jobs. It attempts to answer the questions, "When workers are laid off, how many more are recalled, and, of those recalled, how many choose to return to the employer that laid them off?" It is also an attempt to gather additional information, from an employer's perspective, regarding the planning and implementation of layoffs, including the employer?s expectations prior to the onset of the layoff and the method and timing of providing layoff information to workers.
