If you know you’re about to get laid off could you do a leave of absence and get paid for 6 months while you look for a job? 🤔

How can you take a leave of absence for six months and still get paid? Also if fired, you’d get some form of severance. Plus with the new stimulus bill, wouldn’t you be eligible for unemployment?

Who’s paying you during a leave of absence?

This was my first thought too!!!! Maybe health insurance stays in place during a leave?

CR1 yes I thought getting a severance means I can’t get unemployment, that’s what I meant

I don’t think leaves of absences are paid. Maybe 20% paid like a sabbatical. But still, idk.

Wait sabbatical is only 20% pay?

Milestone sabbatical is 100%, doing a sabbatical before SM is 20%

TLDR: junior associates just don’t get it.

Was it just going to magically get done? WTF

Hi Fishes, Anyone who joined PwC AC Bangalore recently and is/was on bench for 2-3 months? I'm worried about getting "FIRED". Does PwC fire in such cases? Connected with Deployer, Coach and RL many times they say I should wait and need not worry whenever requirement will come they will inform me. I have been on bench for 2+ months now.

Have you ever negotiated a severance? Company ended my employment and wants me to sign a mutual non-disparagement, waive suing them, etc. but they didn't offer me any money. They are fully in the wrong, it's a disability related issue. My options are 1. Sign 2. Refuse to sign 3. Try to negotiate. 4. Sue them (contingent on attorney taking the case). I'd prefer to negotiate, but not sure that's realistic.

Ok wise women I need help! I was laid off for the second time during the pandemic in January. My confidence is severely shaken. The culture was TOXIC and they hired management then hired management on top of existing team (start up). I have 3 offers, all GREAT. One is a job I can do in my sleep, one is a position that will push my skills but offer some great rewards if I do well, the 3rd is going back to where I started my technology career. I have 18 YOE but this leader (female) shook my faith.
