“No Re-Hire” Clause in my Severance Agreement – Why??

Sklover Working Wisdom

Question: My employer was purchased by a competitor, and a large group of us were chosen for layoff. As part of the severance offer, I have to sign an agreement. One of the sections of the severance agreement has the title “No Re-Hire; No Application.”. It says that I will never again “seek to regain employment by the Company or any company that is affiliated with the Company.”. I haven’t done anything to deserve this, and so I am wondering why they would take that attitude toward me.

I was at a job seekers networking event, and an retiree looking for extra work shared it as advice she had received to shield her from age discrimination before the interview. A recent college grad enthusiastically agreed with this advice and said that once she took the dates off her resume, the calls started pouring in. Is this good advice?

my boss drinks and expects me to drive with him

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I work for a tiny company — the two owners/managers are a married couple and then there’s me and one other employee who are admin. About once every six weeks, the owners take us out for a fancy lunch downtown. This is considered a perk and a treat but it is definitely compulsory. At the lunch everybody else drinks, not to excess, but definitely two or three glasses of wine each. I don’t drink, but I don’t care if others do.

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I’ve recently gone through a time-consuming but positive job interview process. The hiring manager has been in communication with me from day one. We had a phone interview, followed by a video conference with one other member ever of the team. The hiring manager then requested some work samples and, after seeing them, scheduled a third and final (his words) video conference with two additional staff members. The interviews could not have gone better, in my opinion.
