Bumping or Layoff Procedures

Bumping/Layoff Procedures- Detailed procedures that determine who will be laid off if no work is available; generally allow employees to use their seniority to remain on the job.

Most such Bumping/Layoff Procedures have these features in common:

1. Seniority is usually the ultimate determinant of who will work.

2. Seniority can give way to merit or ability, but usually only when no senior employee is qualified for a particular job.

3. Seniority is usually based on the date the employee joined the organization, not the date he or she took particular job.

4. Because seniority is usually company-wide, an employee in one job can usually bump or displace an employee in another job, provided the more senior.
