I’ve been in the workforce for 15 years, with four different jobs. My wife has been in HR just as long. I have never ever heard of a company that would share the reason for separation or compensation. Dates of employment and job title are all anyone will share. Saying that you were terminated for performance or for cause opens up a company to lawsuits. Nobody wants that.

Bcg 1 is correct. It’s a lawsuit waiting to happen, employers will not indicate why you’re no longer in the role.

Nah you’re good. Never disclose terminations.

What is the specific question on the background check? If there is a space asking why you left, I’d just say “left to go to X job” It’s irrelevant why you left. Usually employeers only verify employment and title. Maybe salary and sometimes if you are “rehirable” which getting laid off should not impact

I’d leave it blank or check resign if a mandatory field. My last background check asked for starting and ending salaries. I left them all blank..

Have you ever negotiated a severance? Company ended my employment and wants me to sign a mutual non-disparagement, waive suing them, etc. but they didn't offer me any money. They are fully in the wrong, it's a disability related issue. My options are 1. Sign 2. Refuse to sign 3. Try to negotiate. 4. Sue them (contingent on attorney taking the case). I'd prefer to negotiate, but not sure that's realistic.

Any insight from Deloitte folks on the announced layoffs? Has anyone from PwC or KPMG heard anything similar? EY has left the door open for layoffs, but hasn’t laid out specific plans yet. It feels inevitable though. While I don’t think I’m on the chopping block (famous last words), I do worry about the morale impact on my teams and the office in general. Curious to hear other perspectives.

I work with someone who at most should be fired or at least be reprimanded for her condescending attitude towards team members. I've started emailing responses to her whenever she calls me or messages me. When she responds she will usually cc her manager and others because she thinks shes always right. She will always show her attitude in her responses and doesn't seem to understand how bad she comes across.

I’ve been at an agency just over a year where we have so many silly meetings. We have copywriter meetings for just our account to talk about what we’re working on. We have meetings for all copywriters at the agency. We have meetings for all creatives. Sometimes all on the same day! This drives me crazy—all the talking about the work and no doing. Please save me.
