On a visa and laid off recently, I was luckily to get into a FT industry role with sponsorship.
But the market is very very bad, wake up your networks, apply aggressively and look out.

Companies think that D pays you more bcos of travel and other BS, so had to take 20k base paycuts.

Not relocating now bcos of Covid, but need to in future.

Am in the same boat. Got laid off few weeks back. Applied for H4 and EAD based on my wife’s H1. Still waiting. They say don’t even ask us for an update before December. The job market is super hard. Anyone who responds pretty much vanishes once you say H1. Looks like there are a total of 10 companies hiring. And there are a million people applying for every position

Wait...... so there is a second round of laid off at D this year?

Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.

Hi there! I’ve been in recruiting for agencies for the past 7 years. It has been volatile with furloughs and layoffs the past few years. I would love to transition into HR.

Today’s headline: 3.9% unemployment.

Meanwhile on fishbowl, 5+ posts about people getting laid off in the last 24 hours.

I was very successful as an internaional sales exec at a startup for 15 years before we were bought by a large publicly traded company. The culture shift was dramatic, as was the way that I was expected to work. I was laid off a tortuous 3 years after the buyout.

While I was in some ways relieved (put me out of my misery!) I spiralled pretty hard and after a while started working PT jobs, gig type stuff, etc. while I figured things out, and healed from burnout.

Depression and anxiety were affecting my job and so I told my counselor and HR lead. I took a leave of absence (short term disability).

Can I sue for wrongful termination due to the firm’s treatment of my disability?
