Shall I disclose reason for leaving a firm during my initial call with a recruiter from said firm, if I was laid off? Are they privy to that information. Ironically being recruited by that same firm

External recruiter? Internal should know

Employers legally can only provide certain pieces of information: your title at the time of departure, dates of employment at the company, and if you are eligible for rehire or not. Large companies very often shy away from providing any info on “rehire eligibility” to prevent any potential lawsuits, but that’s no guarantee. You don’t have to disclose in blunt words “I was laid off” but you can essentially allude to the same thing in a much more professional matter. Then again, COVID provided literally everyone with the best reason for looking for employment. Look into speaking with an independent HR consultant who can help you navigate the job hunting process if you find you are having difficulty.

Wait a min, same firm? Never mind, they know. Be honest and blunt

You’re being recruited by the firm that laid you off? I’m sure they know.

This has happened to me. The recruiter might now know. I did not want to be hired back so I told them right away. If you want to be hired back maybe be tactful how/what you say
