Has anyone ever negotiated a layoff contingency clause? In negotiations with a VP level job at a smaller public company (10B MC). Am 45/55 to leave BCG, and a guarantee to not be laid off or have a significant parachute if a recession persists might put me over the edge, but don’t know how common or likely that is.

Severance and change in command clauses are fairly common.

I’ve never heard of someone negotiating immunity to layoffs. Usually at will employment cuts both ways.

I would instead negotiate for a clause that guarantees pay for 6 months or longer when laid off unexpectedly that can give you enough runway to find a next gig. Basically you want the BCG transition benefit. Can’t think they would agree to anything else. Good luck

“If a recession persists” ..unemployment is less than 4%. What recession are you referring to?

If the FED slams the breaks, you’ll quickly see the recession. We’ve already seen layoffs and hiring freezes.

Now with the Deloitte layoffs announcement I feel my paranoia is reasonable. How do you manage work life balance when you want to keep your hours up for fear of losing your job? I have been asked to shift some of my work since I’m working too much apparently and others aren’t working enough, but that scares me. I am a February new hire, very nervous.

Hi. I’m an exempt employee (my boss’s only W-2 employee) and have two weeks of PTO. He’s making me use that for my physical therapy and doctors appointments, and I just got diagnosed with something related to my I jury (not work related) that could qualify me for temporary disability. How do I approach this and can I get fired for this? I have to take care of my body! And he’s insanely rigid, cheap, stubborn, and at this point I don’t even think he cares about me. I’m a very hard worker!

I feel that asking questions even if you already know the answer is good for optics — is this true?
