Greatest trick the worker pulled is laws that make you get paid out for PTO at severance. “Here’s that $10k bonus I earned but did not receive!”

Did ya read the OP? Do you know who Keyzer Soze is? Have you ever seen the movie The Usual Suspects? Did you hear a “whoosh” when the reference went over your head? Do you know that people can refer to movies, and other people can bend their references to make a point or a joke?

Ah yes, the old “unlimited PTO.” Did that once, never again.

Disclaimer: ignorant on rollovers…trying to mitigate that here. Currently rolling over my 401k with a previous employer to my current employer, per their requirement. The previous 401k intuition cut me a couple checks (pre-tax and Roth) and now I’m supposed to mail those to the institution running my new/current 401k. Does this mean I had to close all my positions (a loss in most cases 📉) and now have to use that lump sum to purchase new funds, albeit a lower price point (at this moment)?

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
