Carl Cunningham on Reducing Workweeks to Preserve Employment
June 01, 2009
In Employee Benefit News Canada, Andrea Davis's
article, “Reduced Workweek Gains Traction; Four-day Workweek
Seen as One Way to Preserve Employment,” the use of reduced
workweeks as an option to layoffs is examined. Carl Cunningham
mentions key points of concern and is quoted as saying,
“Employment is a form of contract... You want to know if
there's any written terms that would restrict the employer's
ability to change the terms of the contract."
