    With layoffs looming for a lot of workers all across the state, many of you are asking: Am I on the list to be laid off?

    The Layoff List

    [LA] The Layoff List
    You may be able to anticipate layoffs at your company, thanks to a California law.

    Companies are required by state and federal law to alert workers, local and state officials 60 days in advance of any layoffs involving 75 employees or more.

    The California Employment Development Department posts the notices on its Web site, stating, "Advance notice provides employees and their families some transition time to adjust to the prospective loss of employment, to seek and obtain alternative jobs and, if necessary, to enter skills training or retraining that will allow these employees to successfully compete in the job market."

    Industries most affected in California, according to the list, are technology, banking, medical, pharmaceuticals and airlines. In California, JP Morgan Chase Banks are expected to lay off 362 employees by Jan. 29, and 2,372 by the end of the year.
