Layoffs--the Employee's View

Evil HR Lady

Especially this part, where the staff realizes that layoffs are happening: In seconds, we are all back in the parking lot, slapping a Post-it on Jana's car -- "Meet us at Rotelli's" -- and fleeing a quarter-mile down the street on foot so that when the boss comes back out, there will be no one here to fire. A friend sent me this article, Terminated: Desperately seeking plan B.

Layoffs and the Employee Over 40: Are you flexible and retrainable?

Career Key

Think you are protected from layoffs if you're over 40? Of course many employers don't do their homework before conducting layoffs, sometimes because they are, in fact, discriminatory and just want to get rid of older employees. Start picking your path now so if you are the victim of a layoff, discriminatory or otherwise, you will have options. Recent news reports about a U.S. Supreme Court decision favorable to older workers may lead you to believe you are protected.

A Friendly Warning from the Grim Reaper

Evil HR Lady

I may have hinted a few times that I know a thing or two about layoffs. This would be true. In fact, if you see me coming, it's best to start packing up your things right now because it will save us all hassle later on. This, actually, is not true. Your manager would be terminating you, not me, so feel free to chat with me and share your Christmas candy.) So, here's the deal. You may get laid off. Yes, I know, you are a stellar performer and your boss loves you and blah, blah, blah.

Relocated and Laid Off

Evil HR Lady

The HR person told me that my contract spelled out the severance package if the company was bought out and that there would be no layoffs for at least the next 6 months. However, after 3 months, they announced layoffs and I was let go. I would not have accepted the job had I known that layoffs would occur this soon and I was even promised that they would not.

Random Thoughts

Evil HR Lady

When I hear massive layoffs announced at companies, my immediate sympathies are with the HR people who have to figure out the whole mess and create the documents for everyone. I realized I’ve been in HR too long when I was reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to my daughter and when Grandpa Joe tells about how Mr. Wonka just shut down his factory and fired all 10,000 workers and all I can think about is, “You can’t do that! You just violated the WARN act.
