Layoff or Reduction-in-Forces: What Does Each Mean for You?

It can be scary to hear about layoffs and RIFs within your own company, and it can be even more so if you are one of the employees let go, but unfortunately, layoffs do happen. If you were a part of a layoff and you believe that your employer was unfair in the way that they approached it, contact the Pleasanton employment attorneys at Garcia & Gurney, ALC to see if you have a wrongful termination case.
