Abstract

Until recently, layoffs were not common among IT workers. The recent “dot com meltdown” has changed this. Because IT workers are knowledge workers, these circumstances combine to create an unusual set of problems for IT managers. Discussed in this chapter is how protection of intellectual property may be affected by layoffs and suggestions are offered for how these problems may be addressed.
