Can you ask to get laid off?
The quick answer is yes, you can approach either HR or your manager about getting laid off. Which one you choose depends on your relationship with both people. If you have a good relationship with your manager and she isn’t likely to fire you for asking, then go to her first.
Will I get my job back after being laid off?
There’s no guarantee you’ll get your job back, however, even if your former employer is hiring for your former position. Your employer isn’t required to hire you unless they’ve provided you a written agreement promising you’d be rehired.
Is it layoff or laid off?
A layoff is not to be confused with wrongful termination. Laid off workers or displaced workers are workers who have lost or left their jobs because their employer has closed or moved, there was insufficient work for them to do, or their position or shift was abolished (Borbely, 2011).
Can I be laid off without pay?
If you are laid-off you should get your full pay unless it is part of your contract that your employer can lay you off without pay or on reduced pay. If it is not part of your employment contract, you may agree to change your contract. For example, a lay-off might be better than being made redundant.
