The latter two have 80 and 38 questions respectively while the broader tag has 300+. Redundancy lacks a tag description while layoff has one that doesn't actually accurately capture the concept of being laid off as opposed to being fired (for performance issues). Termination's description covers both types of involuntarily ending to a job as well as quitting/resigning. Not sure about that either.
At present firing redirects to termination so to be consistent we should probably merge these two tags in as well. Unless we'd like to have a distinct tag for lay-offs in which case I'd say we should keep the more common US term of layoff and merge the mostly British term redundancy into it.
Based on the overall support for mapping between redundancy and layoff, this synonym is now approved. A suggested one from layoff > redundancy existed with +2 score that I swapped around, then confirmed via merger.
Tag wikis have been adjusted as well. Suggested usage now:
- termination: firing [a lot of questions will still use this generically]
- layoff: not-for-cause termination
- quitting: at employee's initiaitve
