Ensuring compliance with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act, where applicable, is a cornerstone of our services.

Communication during a layoff is a delicate process, and Athlone Consulting excels in addressing this challenge. Transparency, employee morale, and legal compliance are paramount in our communication strategies. We provide communication strategies and offer insights on conducting layoffs, considering the current remote work landscape.
