Reductions in Force
Nilan Johnson Lewis has extensive experience supporting employers through reductions in force of all sizes, ranging from a handful of employees up through several thousand. We have advised and supported Fortune 50 employers through every step of the process, including identifying positions for reduction, developing selection criteria that are both business-focused and legally defensible, working with leaders to understand the impact on their teams, conducting adverse-impact analyses, developing severance terms, and drafting separation packages.
We are especially knowledgeable regarding the intricacies of the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA) and Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) requirements. And we have developed numerous OWBPA disclosures and WARN notices addressing a wide variety of scenarios.
