Last week a group of LAPC with approved VSP exit dates of Aug had their VSP revoked. Honoring an agreement means nothing to Oxy and the upper management. They were forced to sign a new employment agreement for most with an exit of end of 2021 or... — read more
For LAPC who took the package last fall, how long was tour insurance paid? I’m trying to figure how many months to ask for and when to expect paying COBRA after accepting an offer. Thanks.
