CBA Labor & Employment Law Committee Meeting
Chicago, IL

Michael A. Warner, Jr. participates in a panel discussion on the topic "Reduction in Force:  A Sign of the Times - How to Implement and Challenge a RIF" at the Chicago Bar Association's Labor & Employment Law Committee meeting. 

Mike presents a management attorney's perspective on this topic, including:

  • Managing a RIF to limit legal liability, use of selection criteria/disparate impact analysis/practical tips;
  • Drafting an airtight waiver and release for a RIF, OWBPA compliance/managing potentially unwaivable claims;
  • Determining state and federal WARN act coverage and compliance; and
  • Union-management issues, scope of duty to bargain.
