When google has killed divisions in the past what happens to low level employees (L3-L4)? Do they get moved to other groups or just laid off?

I believe the last time Google had (noticeable) layoffs was in 08-09 during the recession. I wasn’t there during that time but when I asked colleagues about it years back, cuts were mostly to recruiting and downsizing departments that weren’t needed. The folks that were let go were (at least attempted to be) rehired when the market came back. To answer your question OP, I don’t think the layoffs were level specific but rather department/org specific

After 6 years of temporary contracts and unstable situations, I find my dream job in my dream company. All of a sudden the world goes upside down and I get laid off. I start sending hundreds of applications, with only 2 recruiters getting back to me to say I don’t have experience for the job (this is how it works in Italy). Add a terrible health situation in my family and it seems there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. Ugh. 😞

I got laid off but due to the WARN act, I am still on the payroll for a while. If a background check is done to look at employment history, do they see my official working end date, or the day I am off the payroll?

Job transition question: I recently accepted an offer for a new role with Merrill Lynch, the following day I was fired from my previous employer. I haven’t filled out the updated work history background check info yet. The reason for termination was due to performance expectations not being met. Should I reach out to my new employer and let them know that I’ve been terminated? Should I just put the termination update on the background check form and leave it at that? Wondering what I should do.
