HANDBOOK FOR SUPPORT STAFF



SECTION 1: EMPLOYMENT
1.11 LAYOFF AND REDUCTION IN FORCE

The objective of the College is to maintain steady employment for its employees. When economic conditions make adjustments to staff necessary, employees will be reassigned, where possible, to other positions for which they qualify. When economic conditions make it necessary to reduce staff, the College will retain those employees who, in the judgment of the President, are the most qualified for the positions available.

A layoff can occur because of lack of work, reduction of the staff of the College, or an emergency that creates abnormal conditions. In the event of a layoff, the Vice President of Human Resources will notify you in writing as soon as practicable, but no less than two weeks in advance of the layoff date. The College reserves the right to pay out two weeks wages in lieu of notice.
