Lay offs and short-time working checklist

Lay offs and short-time working checklist

Short-time work or a temporary lay off can be a solution to short term problems such as a temporary downturn in business. This checklist is useful where employees may be entitled to a guarantee payment or a redundancy payment on the grounds that you have laid them off or put them on short-time working.


When can you lay off or require short-time working?

There is no automatic right to impose either lay offs or short-time working, so if you do not have a contractual term permitting such situations, it will be necessary to negotiate the change with the affected employees. Use our Letter Seeking Agreement to a Lay Off or Short-Time Working to ensure consent is obtained.
