According to the Department of Labor, (DOL) 5.1 million jobs have been lost since the recession began in December 2007—with nearly two-thirds (3.3 million) of these loses taking place in the last 5 months.

Recent IOMA research has found that while nearly half of all companies offer severance pay to select groups, a shocking one-third report that they do not give any severance at all.

In today's difficult economy, it's clear that responsible companies must have a formal, legally-sound severance policy to handle layoffs of even a few employees.

But what and how much should you offer, to whom, and for how long? Find out by ordering your copy of this timely IOMA webinar today.

Best-selling webinar recording now available:

HR professionals know that dealing with severed employees is an unfortunate fact of life, but how you handle this situation can make all the difference.

A formal severance policy can do more than reduce the stress of departing employees—it promotes a sense of commitment and equity among your current employees, and can protect your organization from lawsuits.

Since there's no telling when your severance policy will be needed, the best time to update it is NOW.
