Model Memo to Employer Requesting “Survivor Demotion” instead of Layoff

Quite often, employees receive notice – sometimes formal, sometimes informal – of a likely or impending layoff. For some employees – especially those approaching retirement or vesting, or in particularly job-scarce industries – a demotion may be preferable to a layoff.

If you are interested, this Model Memo shows you what to say, and how to say it.
