60-day notice if legally required per the WARN Act. Otherwise, you’ll be informed by HR that your employment has been terminated effective immediately.

Depends. Usually happens immediately. Sometimes a couple of days if a work hand-off needs to take place.

Most I’ve seen are 0-30 days, though generally the departure is immediate unless critical transition is needed or the lay-off is in the form of taking a voluntary package.

If your employment is at-will, 0 days is all that is legally required. Otherwise many states have WARN requirements of 60 days.

Typically Zero days although most employees pay out severance and outstanding vacation

It seems we are headed into a recession, if we aren’t there already. With that, how do you all feel about changing jobs now? I had been planning to exit this year but am also hesitant to be the new person on a team in a recession if there are layoffs. I am also trying to balance that with over half my comp being in RSUs and AMZN shares tanking lately. From a financial perspective, I can’t decide whether it is riskier to stay or go. Thoughts?

I used to be in consulting but moved over to social impact two years ago. I found out I’m getting laid off EOM due to budget cut and I’m really sad. I really don’t have the motivation to apply for new roles, interview etc when usually I actually love that process. Also my role was well paid for nonprofit sector and looking at other roles in the space makes me realize I’m not going to get close to the same salary again. Considering consulting again but loved this job 1000% more. Advice?
