Get your director friend to hire you back.

No way

If nothing else, you did your friends a nice favor, and you generated some goodwill with your former employer.

A2, I like the way you are thinking!

Talk to a labor lawyer. I am sure that you could use the money if you are able to negotiate it. One factor will be the applicable policy, and whether that contemplates you being an employee when the individuals actually start, whether they have had to be at the firm for x number of months, etc. I am sorry that you were laid off.

Circle of employment

Nope.

How did that happen? You get laid off from too much bench or what?

Sorry OP, that kind of bites.

@M3 yes 2 weeks

Policy wise I believe you don't technically qualify for the referral bonus until your friends complete their probation period. Maybe it is different in the US practice though. Maybe as mentioned your friends hire you back though.

If someone can verify this? I have seen so many posts here and on Quora too, that TCS release the salary structure breakup after the interview rounds, but do not send the offer letter, even after acceptance of salary. The HR person won't deny you on the face, but keep on delaying that offer letter release would take time. Is this true? Do a reputed company like TCS make such fake promises or raise false hopes in candidates?
