Looking to resign tomorrow. My direct manager has been out sick but the head of my team is in. He hired me initially before we hired my current direct manager. Does it matter who I resign to? I don’t want to disrespect anyone but also I am trying to resign before they lay me off and tomorrow the head of our team placed an early morning mtg. Smells like a lay off…

Why would you resign before being laid off? You’re passing up severance!

like

If you wait to be laid off, is there a chance you'll receive a severance package?

like

I would be laid off or fired due to performance. I’ve been trying my best with the role but ultimately cannot keep up with the work load. So they’ve been very particular with things and placing a magnifying glass on my mistakes. Ultimately theres a huge misalignment for me here. We are just not right for one another.

like

It sounds like you are actually being terminated, is that right? A lay off is not performance-based and is usually due to company downsizing. If you are anticipating you will be fired, you can resign, but it might be better to let them fire you. Unless you are fired for gross negligence or a code of conduct violation, you will likely be eligible to claim unemployment if needed.

like

I agree. Get the severance and unemployment. You will land on your feet but until then take the package. What happens if there is no layoff?

like

Exactly so take the severance and the sign on with the new company and count it as a win!

like

You want to be laid off. Ask for severance and for the company to pay for your COBRA coverage costs for X amount of months. Ask for a lay off letter from the department outline that the company estimated your position. If you are laid off you can likely apply for unemployment at state of fed level until you find a new job.

Definition of terms is really important here. A layoff happens when the company let's you go due to no fault of your own/company restructuring and/or downsizing. A termination is when the company let's you go due to job performance. Layoffs will almost never burn you on a reference check or hinder future employment but a termination can. If you think a layoff is coming, stick around and get that severance $, or if you think you're being terminated, probably makes sense to quit

Like everyone has said terminology does matter and I won't repeat what has been said before. Not sure if you are early in your career but I can only assume that you are. It is okay if you are laid off or fired, you can land on your feet again, it's how resourceful you are.

Not sure why you are thinking you will be laid off or fired but getting a not-so-stellar review is not always an indication of being let go. Most of the time you will get placed on a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP). That's usually when you know if they are planning to let you go. If they are documenting at this point they may be creating a case to go in that direction but you still have an opportunity to turn it around.

In the meantime, I would say if you worked with anyone who thinks you are doing a great job, ask them for their contact information. You will be able to use them as a reference for your next employment.

To ease you if you are fired, here are a few things:

Although this may not be of comfort, note that you are not the first person to get fired. Just like any bad moment in life, this too shall pass.

Take it as a learning opportunity and accept accountability from your end, even if it was a wrongful termination. Why? Because there is something to learn from this situation that you could have done differently. Like how to deal with a bad Manager because most likely you will have another one in your career and if you take the time to reflect you will now know how to best manage the situation. Now if it was on your end due to bad performance, what can you do to improve? if not motivated, how can you stay motivated?

Submit for unemployment, on the same day your received notice. It will take a while with paperwork but doing it on the same day gives you an action item and a bit of distraction.

Update your resume and tap into your network. Make it an effort to apply to new roles every day. If you get an interview, stay calm cause anxiety will reflect on your interviews.

You don't have to say you were fired; if asked, you can say we both parted ways when you realized it wasn't the right place for you for x and y reasons. Never talk bad about your previous employer to a new potential employer. Practice with a friend who is good at asking follow-up questions. Get comfortable with being asked and answering the questions without oversharing and committing to definite.

In the background check, depending on the state you live in and how big your previous employer is they may not disclose you were fired. In most cases, that can be grounds for a lawsuit. Most companies now outsourced this information and all the information they provide is Title, compensation, start and the last date of employment, and if you are re-hireable (saying no is no indication of being fired- it could be because you didn't give two weeks' notice). Most of the time if you did great in the interview those pieces won't matter.

Hopefully, this information helps a little

Are there not any rules for the Basic salary to be at a certain % of CTC or it depends totally on the company?

Also PF deductions they are offering only 1800 p.m but considering 20000 basic it should be 12% of 20000 right?
