Liz Claiborne and Macy's are two of the latest companies to announce layoffs. The employees who remain at companies after staff cuts don't exactly have it easy. They will likely face a heavier work load and a rumor mill in overdrive.

Guests:

Barbara Kiviat, staff writer at Time magazine, and author of Time.com article "After Layoffs, There's Survivor's Guilt"

Mitchell Lee Marks, author of Charging Back Up the Hill: Workplace Recovery after Mergers, Acquisitions, and Downsizings
