Q. Are there any laws that prohibit offering a new job description with a lower wage in place of a layoff? — Kim, Pennsylvania

A. No, there are no laws prohibiting this approach. If you need to eliminate a job, there is no reason you cannot offer the affected employee another open position. Of course, he or she may be upset about reduced pay, but most people would prefer that to becoming unemployed.

Convey that the current position is being eliminated, and it’s the employees’ choice if they want to be reassigned to the other job.
