Determine three ways that employee layoffs can affect other  employees in the organization. Examine two additional ways that employee  layoffs can affect the organization as a whole.   
Imagine that you are a manager of the HR department of a  company and you are required to lay off one of your employees. Propose  two ways that you can ensure you are abiding by the laws that govern  employment and ethical practices.   

Respond to this post.
When  some employees are laid off from the organization, whatever be the  reasons, the final effect is very negative on the present employees. The  motivation and hence the productivity of the present employees  decreases with the news. This is due to the fear in the minds of  employees that they now start searching for some new jobs elsewhere.  There is a fear that they might also get the same news in near future.  This increases the turnover for the company and hence the cost  increases. Also with the decrease in motivation and the productivity,  the financial performance of the company goes down.  Another  effect is on the new projects, whenever a manager feels that a  particular project is a bit risky, the project is not undertaken since  the risk of losing funds may fall upon the manager itself and the person  might lose his or her job. Another effect is on the image of the  company. After such news, there is a higher probability that the  employees feel the company is not the best employer and hence they would  not recommend it to others. This negative image amount the company  would spread very fast.
Question #2 
First,  there is a need of proper communication between the HR department and  the employee regarding the performance or other reason that is  responsible for the termination of the employment of the person. The  person should be communicated the complete reasons. Then a proper  probationary period can be established that would help the employee to  search for the new job in the due course. There is also a probability  that the employee be given complete compensation for the probationary  period. In this case, the compensation should be a bit higher than the  current salary of the employee. As an HR manager, it is important to  remain honest throughout the period and transparency should be  maintained so that there is no ill feeling in the minds of anyone. All  the process should happen according to the law and all the necessary  steps should be taken as per the employment document originally provided  to the employee.
