I'm on my last year of OPT and worried about the layoffs as it's difficult to get hired due to less visa time. If my salary payment is drawn out for a month after layoff, when will my 60 days start?

60 day period starts after severance period ends. Just had a friend go through it

I believe the 60 day grace period begins from the date you are laid off

Technically, you should have 90 days of unemployment time on your OPT too. So you have that time OR date of OPT expiry (whichever is earlier) + 60 days

Im on my OPT extension... So I believe I get only 60 days. For initial STEM opt, it's 90 days.

You have a total of 150 if you're in STEM opt

I haven't used any of my 90 day period but after extension, it's only 60 days

Absolutely, positively start looking at back up plans. I am not trying to be pessimistic but if things go south it will help you soft land elsewhere

I have 12 mth contract to finish an exam. Due to mh I was not able to complete this despite asking my mngr several times for appropriate accomodations. Even while I was w/i my contract he did not take the pressure off of me. Now that it is close to the deadline, my mh has declined as a result making it even more difficult to complete. Is it reasonable that at this time he started to talk about the economy and potential lay offs?

Couple of questions w/r/t GC. Ppl who got their GC through Deloitte, could you share how you started the process? Was it an automatic process once you hit the 1/2 yr mark at the firm or did you meet w a Partner and made a case as to why you should be sponsored for a GC? How long is the process from start to finish? I understand that these past years the process has been slower bc of many reasons but I would like to get an idea of how long it might potentially take.
