Layoffs May Force Legal Departments to Balance the Heartfelt With the Vague

Months into the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses are still trying to manage the economic fallout—which in some cases includes layoffs. Thanks to social media, many of those departures are taking place on a very public stage, where corporate legal departments may have to help their organizations balance the reputational damage that comes from saying either too much or too little at all.

"Such dissatisfaction can often be rooted in the employee’s search for the “why” behind the dismissal, a question that Coseglia believes that employers—at least in the United States—are not particularly incentivized to answer.
