Thoughts on Veteran status and the ongoing corporate layoffs?

What do you mean?

Like if are you protected by identifying as a protected veteran? I think not.

I would imagine there are some strings attached for a corporation if they take a kick back from hiring a qualified candidate

Nah won’t matter I think, unless you play a critical role in the org

I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station

To our Manager of Production, Head of Accounts noted the extreme stress being put on the production dept due to layoffs and resignations and suggested our team needed more support. Manager simply replied “let them walk.”

If you are separated from your firm and you are kept on payroll for an additional month to facilitate payout of severance when does the 60 day grace period count start? Is it on the last day on payrl?

KPMG is taking the PWC approach to audit layoffs. Low performers will be separated rather than defining a RIF, but we all know it’s a lay-off by another name.

She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
