Alternative: Lay Yourself Off

At some of the paint maker's plants, Sherwin-Williams (SHW) allows six-week voluntary layoffs on a rolling basis. Employees cannot choose the dates, but they know when the layoffs are coming and can sign up on a first come, first served basis. They don't get paid for those weeks but benefits continue. Employees "almost always" come back, says the company.
