How to read and understand the WFAA


The Work Force Adjustment Appendix is organized around key decision points. Some parts may apply to your work force adjustment situation. Other parts might not.

The following approach elaborates key considerations. There are many other rights spelled out in the WFAA so it’s important to read it carefully. 

Once the employer decides that a person or a group of people will be work force adjusted

the three most important overall questions that have to be asked are:

  • What are the employer’s obligations?
  • Do Parts I to VI of the Work Force Adjustment Appendix apply to the situation?
  • Or instead, does Part VII of the Work Force Adjustment Appendix apply?
