Job Elimination

Outten & Golden attorneys have experience advising clients about their alternatives and their leverage when they are told that their jobs have been eliminated. A reorganization of a department, division, or entire workforce—whether because of a merger or acquisition, a new manager, the recommendation of a consultant, or some other reason—often results in the elimination of some jobs, or at least job titles. Sometimes, however, a manager may stage a reorganization as a front to eliminate one or more individuals (not jobs); if the manager’s motivations are unlawfully discriminatory, our lawyers can advise clients on their legal options.
