they can’t get unemployment, they have the option of going and working inside. Technically still employed.
Might want to read your supplemental layoff language.
In the Central Region, you have the option to bump inside to avoid layoff....
it's not a requirement.
"Laid-off, full-time seniority employees, in the order of their seniority, may elect to take the work of one (1) or two (2) part-time employees, for the duration of the layoff, provided they have more total Company seniority."
"If a laid-off, full-time employee elects to take a layoff rather than exercise his/her right to displace a part-time employee, he/she shall be considered a laid-off employee for lack of work for the purpose of unemployment compensation."
