    redundant, being slacked, fired

    Dear ALL,

    What are the differences between these words related to unemployment.

    Being redundant
    Being slacked
    Is fired
    Layoff

    Also, what is the different between the word unemployed and jobless

    Are there any words related to unemployment except words mentioned above?

    Thanks in advance.

    Being redundant The job you do is no longer necesary to the the operation of the company, therefore it is closed.
    Being slacked sacked Your employment is terminated suddenly, either due to your incompetence or to an error you have made.
    Is fired The same as being sacked.
    Layoff The company is reducing the number of staff in regular employment, but intend to re-employ when things improve.

    Also, what is the different between the word unemployed and jobless There is no difference. In both cases you are not employed in any work.

    Are there any words related to unemployment except words mentioned above?

    Thanks in advance.
