From the Paper:

"While Sutton's argument, that layoffs can be approached in a much more humane way that softens the blow, it does not necessarily give managers new information that can help them better deal with the situation. According to Michael Moore's book, Downsize This, rules like Sutton's have been in company's personnel manuals since the 90s. In addition, Moore suggests that these guidelines don't do much to soften the blow of layoffs. While layoffs are always necessary for growth and in times of economic trouble, companies should understand that it is common sense for managers to treat the laid off employee with compassion and respect, being honest with all employees about layoffs. Instead of spending their time thinking about better ways to tell workers they are laid off, however, perhaps managers should be considering methods of reducing layoffs."
