This term or phrase is currently an entry in The SmallBusiness.com Business Glossary WIKI. Please help expand this entry into a more detailed description.

Attached unemployment is a type of temporary layoff in which a company files weekly unemployment claims for the people it has laid off. Traditionally, manufacturers have used attached unemployment, but now more and more small businesses are adopting it.[1] In some cases, the company continues to pay health insurance to the temporarily laid off employee.
