If an employer is experiencing a temporary shortage of work, as an alternative to redundancy, it may decide to lay employees off temporarily. A lay-off is where there is no work provided to the employees and in consequence they are paid no salary or wages. An alternative to lay-off is short-time working, where employees’ working hours are reduced and in consequence their pay is reduced in proportion.
