Related article move and stubification[edit]

You are invited to a discussion at Talk:Involuntary termination of employment#Renaming back and rewriting. That article, which overlaps the subject matter of this article, used to be called "Termination of employment", but some of its voluntary-termination content was blanked and the article was later moved to "Involuntary termination of employment", which appears to duplicate the topic of Dismissal (employment). Also, the small amount of sourced content in that former Termination of employment appears to be more related to this article (Layoff). --Closeapple (talk) 09:09, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Peer Review[edit]

The edits that have been made to the Layoff’s page are very impressive and your group has done an excellent job improving the page. First off, I think that the introduction paragraph is very informative and allows for someone who knows nothing about the term, really get a feel for some of its basic terms. Then after you go into an actual terminology section which I think helps the reader better understand the ins and outs of what layoffs actually involve. I do also enjoy the explanation of the compensation system that goes hand and hand with layoffs, and the many links to other pages that can better define the term that way the page has a fluent flow of information without seeming to cluttered. Although I am confused on why you included just the compensation rate for Australia, I assume it is to give an example of differing kinds of compensation, but it does throw me off just a little. After that the sections of see also, references, and further readings is a great tool and the way you all have organized it is very clean looking and helpful. Altogether this edit has been both beneficial to the page, and anyone who is looking for more information on layoffs. I look forward to your groups presentation on your final edits. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gonzales5064 (talkcontribs) 20:08, 27 November 2016 (UTC)

I like where the article is going. I think that useful information is being added to 'layoffs' and that it is headed in the right direction. I am still not a fan of the other parts of the world section, but it will be helpful to people in those parts of the world since this is an English speaking Wikipedia. Our information is not new and is neutral. We have headings that are clearly defined. I think we still need to work on our newest paragraph that we have added about the effects of layoffs and continue to concentrate on North America- our primary goal in this revision. I still would prefer to delete the section of unemployment compensation in Australia. Kls216 (talk) 03:20, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

This article gives a clear definition of what a layoff consists of. The first paragraph gives a good explanation of a layoff however the first section overall has poor readability. The section is chopped into many separate pieces and could be combined into one solid paragraph to create a better introduction and overview of the topic. The article itself is written well and I like the terminology section, giving the reader a better idea of how the word and idea of a layoff is coined throughout the public and private sector. The references and sources a good in quality however reference 8 does not have enough information to be a full citation. The reference 14 hyperlink redirects to a webpage not found 404 error (the homepage is still active though). The references should be double checked before the final edit to ensure all the hyperlinks are current and all cited sources are properly used. The unemployment compensation section is written well and has a lot of good information on efforts to ease the effects of layoffs. I believe the article could be expanded with another section on major layoffs in the public and private sector. A history of major layoffs and how they have effected that country politically, socially, and economically could help expand the idea of the effects of layoffs in the article.

The "Layoff" article is very informative and well written. Today, sadly it is one of the most talked about things in economies and job markets worldwide. A significant reduction in force; this article has been revised well for the most part. I think expanding on a history section for this article could be key considering it is very relevant in the lives of many. Covering not only the history and statistics of layoff's in the U.S. but world wide. Specifically, the terminology section was very interesting and substantial. It read very well and increased the knowledge I have on why the term "Layoff" is used. Also the common abbreviations section helps in the case I ever see them in the future I will now know what it is referring to. Moving on to the Unemployment compensation section; this section reads well and is also very informative in my opinion. It is the most thoroughly written part of this article, good job. Unemployment compensation in Australia is interesting; However, I think this article could potentially b changed to "Unemployment Compensation Throughout the World" this would give a chance to show the differences between countries and compensation. Besides a few minor changes this is a good article! — Preceding unsigned comment added by L.lynch95 (talkcontribs) 02:54, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Check for POV[edit]

Article seems to be from a purely American viewpoint. What about other counties? UK? Wood Thrush (talk) 22:19, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
