Curious as to why you didn't upgrade it to premium processing at some point? I understand that you have 240 days from your previous expiry to continue working if your renewal is pending but seems like the mental stress and anxiety would be terrible.

Interesting. Didn't know that was a thing. My renewal was filed in April 2020, upgraded to PP last week and got my approval in three days so YMMV I guess.

I’m being let go. It came as a surprise because my time with the company I’ve gotten positive feedback. A couple of weeks ago my boss told me that I was being put on a 30 day performance review plan. The last 2 weeks I’ve gotten positive feedback about improvement but on Thursday my boss decided to cut the review plan short and give me an end date. Since I’ve been there <1 year I’m getting 2 weeks severance. Is there room for severance negotiation? A friend in HR (not ad) told me I should ask.
