If you have any accrued vacation try asking if you could take vacation and have your formal termination dare once your vacation is over. This would give you more time to find a job.

So sorry OP. I can’t help with the 1st question. For the 2nd one. H1b has a grace period (60 days?). Start looking for a new job. Reach out to recruiters (LinkedIn, recruiting companies). Also consider re-enrolling into school if possible to switch to f1 status if you have the means. Spend a day or a few thinking about what you would want to do. Talk to family and friends for advice. If none of these options appeal to you or you can’t find other options, it’s time to start thinking about what you need to do before leaving for home country.

The 60 day clock starts after your official day with the firm (that’s basically indicated on your last paycheck too)

Thanks man, hope something good will come out of it

I thought the layoffs were only happening for one week last week??

Op I read on another bowl that you can ask for salary continuance vs severance that buys you additional weeks to the 60 days - not entirely sure , but worth asking ! Good luck to you !!

So sorry to hear. Were you the bench OP?

The best thing I did in my career was to reject a job offer from Deloittee!!
