ABSTRACT
The article presents the results of a survey conducted by Right Management in the U.S. as of May 2006, regarding the rehiring of laid-off workers. The survey finds that a number of managers and employees who are laid off in a downsizing are later rehired by their previous employers. According to Eileen Javers, global leader for the center of excellence transition for Right Management, the rehiring signals a significant shift in employer attitudes toward rehiring laid-off workers.
