Employers Plan Recall of Previously Laid-Off Employees

Just kidding! You're not really fired. That's the basic message approximately 38 percent of employers are planning on extending to some of their laid-off workers as business conditions improve, according to a recent report from the Labor Department. Experts say that recalling employees isn't an uncommon practice, particularly when there have been substantial layoffs.


Before accepting a rehire offer, employees should do their best to understand where the company stands financially so they aren't left without a job again in the near future. It might seem like the easy choice to return to what's familiar and skip the challenging learning curve that usually comes with a new job, but it's important to look beyond the comfort zone when making important decisions about your career.
