Consider a furlough. It is essentially a temporary, if indefinite, layoff but the employer could pay the employer portion of health insurance if it is able. This will still allow the employees to receive unemployment in most states.

Good people. Treat employees like family. Dreading having to take this step. Trying to prepare just in case.

Thanks for the response. I'll pass that along in case the company gets to that point.

If they are contemplating taking the next step they should be preparing the demograpgics of the 20-25 employees to avoid perception of discrimination. They may also want to consider offering voluntary separation prior to the selection of the 20-25 employees.
