Layoff Information for Supervisors

Our goal is to minimize layoffs by considering staffing reductions only after other workforce adjustment options have been considered.

Departments should refer to the relevant union contracts (collective bargaining agreements) and Personnel Policies for Staff Members (PPSM) for information about the process and requirements with regard to notice, severance, preferential rehire and recall. 

If layoff or reduction in time becomes necessary, it can be a difficult time for you, affected employees, and remaining employees. The information below can help you navigate the layoff as smoothly as possible for all concerned. As soon as you determine that layoff/RIT may be necessary, contact your Employee Relations Consultant, who will work with you throughout the process.

Your department has specific responsibilities in a layoff/RIT situation. Review the links below for relevant information:
