How may an employer lay off WMS employees and what notice is required?

Permanent employees must receive at least fifteen calendar days' written notice of layoff, except when the employer and employee agree to waive the fifteen-day notice. Notice of layoff must include the reason or basis for layoff and the employee's right to appeal the layoff.
WMS employees without permanent status must receive at least one calendar day's written notice of layoff.
