Generally, when employees are given adequate notice of a layoff, workers’ compensation claims do not increase. One major company found that when it gave notice and had planned on receiving more claims (and in fact set aside significant funds to cover these expected costs), they actually spent none of that money. As with concerns of sabotage, providing notice shows goodwill on the part of the employer, and employees are more likely to feel that they have been treated fairly despite the situation in which they find themselves.
