Can a Lay-off be an Excuse to get Rid of a Particular Employee?

Possibly. This is one of the most difficult questions to answer and requires an analysis of the entire factual milieu of the termination.

If you are planning a reduction in force/layoff and have a particular employee in mind or if you have been laid-off and you have any questions about the propriety or motivation of the termination, consult with legal counsel.
