What is a Work Force Adjustment (WFA) situation?

According to the WFAD, a “work force adjustment” is defined as “a situation that occurs when a deputy head decides that the services of one or more indeterminate employees will no longer be required beyond a specified date because of a lack of work, the discontinuance of a function, a relocation in which the employee does not wish to relocate or an alternative delivery initiative.”

For a SNAPSHOT on the process, see Appendix D to the Directive outlining a summary of the Key Elements of the WFAD.
