Sorry to hear. I got laid off last year. It was crushing but the generous payout softened the blow. Then Had multiple offers within a month. Found a role I absolutely love. So keep your chin up. Better things await! Did not use any external legal counsel. Please DM me if you would like to discuss anything specific.

What was your payout? Did you get the standard 2 weeks sev for each year worked?
