INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Zero Layoff Policy'

Having a zero layoff policy has a positive effect on employee morale, especially during rough economic times, as employees do not have to fear being unemployed. However, the company may need to implement other unpopular cost cutting measures (such as reducing benefits or hours) in order to make up for the costs of not laying employees off.
