This article traces recent changes in methods of controlling unemployment at the company level, comments on the significance of present-day practices, and outlines some future problems. The unemployment problem at the company level is viewed for convenience as consisting of three phases of a sequence: prevention of unemployment, the distribution of unemployment among individual workers, and compensation to workers who are selected for temporary or permanent separation from the payroll. In fact, of course, these phases frequently overlap.
