From time to time a business may suffer a temporary shortage of work.
This is especially relevant during a period of economic downturn or recession.
During this period it is essential to reduce costs to survive until work picks up again.
Performing a review of costs is a useful exercise during the good times, but it can mean the difference between staying in business and having to close in the bad times.
As a last resort it may be necessary for a business to lay-off it's staff or reduce their hours of work for a period of time.

Although an employer has the right to lay-off staff or reduce their working hours, it is not as straight forward as it may seem to reduce their pay.
