FastServe: Legal Issues in Reduction of Workforce

I'm working on a paper about legal issues in workforce reduction. Sorry for the last minute but I need help with the key concepts of employment law that would affect his or her employment status, and cite the text as appropriate Further I need to explain whether there are any extenuating regulatory circumstances (e.g., exceptions to employment at will, or a collective bargaining agreement) that would affect the decision to terminate these people. Under the agency principle, it is my obligation that to act in the best interest of the organization as opposed to self interest. Also identify to what extent my decision on which three people to lay off align with the best interests of the organization. How do I balance the legal risk of terminating individuals from a protected class against the business risk of losing valuable talent? Please provide references.
