Tax question for any Accenture people who were part of the layoffs in August...did you see anything weird with state withholding on your W2? I relocated from VA to NJ in early 2020 and my state withholding switched to NJ when I moved. However (and I never noticed this at the time), all of my earnings, including severance, paid out PTO, and COBRA true up, are shown as taxable income in both states. My tax accountant is scratching his head.

Was laid off earlier and still looking for a job. I’m super interested in fp&a but keep getting sr accountant opportunities. Is it worth to bit the bullet and do the sr acct role for sometime and keeping looking or wait it out? Not trying to get pigeonholed into accounting.

Just left audit for Sr accountant job. Is there an expectation to ask for more work in industry? Feeling no since I’m not “charging hours” or submitting a timesheet but feeling way overpaid for doing almost nothing (not complaining just don’t want to be fired).

Me and another teacher had a meeting with a parent and student. After the meeting, the admin asked us both to stay. He shut the door and yelled at me for not apologizing to the student (the other teacher did before the meeting and I 100% wanted to, but I felt like the opportunity wasn't there - and yes, I know I should have). Tomorrow I plan on apologizing to the student. But do I say something to the admin for yelling at me in front of a coworker? Or let it go.
