Employers have occasionally expressed concern that providing workers with advance notice of layoffs and closings may result in an incident of sabotage by an affected worker. Experience of the state Rapid Response specialists, however, indicates that the opposite is generally true. Providing advance notice, along with early intervention services that boost morale, limit bitterness and apathy, and enable workers to plan their future before they lose their jobs, minimizes the occurrence of sabotage. This action of goodwill on the part of the employer also helps to maintain productivity, lower unemployment insurance costs, and present a more positive image of the company to the communities affected by the layoff or closing.
