The Moore Beer Incorporation is a brewing company that was profiting 25 million dollar a year. The company opened two online marketing and direct distribution channels and soon after the websites went live, technology problems along with slow moving sales killed the company’s profits. As an effect of the company’s slow sales they have decided to abandon its new direct marketing plan and to reduce its employees. The President of the company was given a list to terminate some employees. Some employees may be given an option to transfer into existing openings in other areas of the company. In 1978, Congress enacted the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act (WARN ACT) to deal with plant closings and mass layoffs. It requires employers that have 100 or more employees to give a 60-day notice of a plant closing if 50 or more workers at one site lose their jobs. A mass-layoff provision of the law requires a 60-day notice of layoffs to affected workers if the affected workers make up at least 33 percent of the workforce at the site (with a minimum of 50 affected workers). If 500 or more employees are to be laid off, notice is required regardless of the percentage of the workforce to be laid off at the site (Twomey, David, p.689, 2013). During a layoff or reduction process the selection should be based on measurable and unbiased job-related factors such as:
• length of service or seniority;
• elimination of unnecessary job classifications or certain categories of employees
