Dear all,

What is the difference between retrenchment and layoff?

Can someone in this forum explain?

Thank you,

Paresh

Hi Paresh,

Lay off is temporary, the employment status of the employee is not deemed terminated whereas retrenchment is permanent and its deemed to be terminated.

Hope it helps.
