Layoff Question?
Many employees will have questions about their individual situations in the event they receive layoff notices. At this stage, Fermilab's Human Resources staff lacks the resources to deal with hypothetical individual cases. (Employees who do receive layoff notices will have individual meetings with human resources and benefits specialists to discuss their specific situations.)

Q. Will there be tighter security in place, both at the gates and on the property, once the layoffs have been announced? It is a sad reality that there has been retaliation as a result of layoffs and closings at other organizations.

A. There will be additional security during the layoff process. We are still working out the details, so we can't provide specifics at this time. We are sensitive to the issues caused by layoffs and how they can cause some people to do things they wouldn't do under normal circumstances.

Q. After being given a layoff notice, will the employee have an avenue of appeal?

A. There is no internal lab appeal after a layoff with respect to the layoff action. There can be appeals regarding such things as vacation and severance payouts to correct what the individual believes is a mistake in the details of the separation, but not concerning the separation action.
