Reductions in Force

Date Updated: May 9th, 2012

Under some circumstances, particularly when the College must preserve its critical functions in the event of a disaster or other crisis or emergency situation, Scripps College may need to restructure or reduce its workforce. If restructuring operations or reducing the number of employees becomes necessary, the College will attempt to provide advance notice, if possible, to help prepare affected individuals. When possible, employees subject to layoff will be informed of the nature of the layoff and the foreseeable duration of the layoff, whether short-term or indefinite.

In determining which employees will be subject to layoff, Scripps College will take into account, among other things, operational requirements, the skills, productivity, ability, and past performance of employees involved and, when feasible, the employee’s length of service.
