Thread regarding Pearson PLC layoffs

Rehire Upon Layoff -- Any Experiences With This?

My former role at Pearson was eliminated, I was laid off a month ago, and I’ve applied for another open position with Pearson. I am guessing that if I get it, I will be starting as a new employee again with none of the seniority in regard to yearly vacation time that I acquired in my former role. Has anyone experienced this? Is it worth trying to negotiate getting that seniority back upon rehire, if I do get an offer? Is it even possible to get it back?

I am also wondering if I get rehired, would I have the same username in the Pearson system, would the folders I created to organize emails and Google Drive files be saved, and would my Neo information be saved? Or is that all wiped clean when a position is terminated?

I'm pretty sure that if you are rehired within 6 months of being laid off, that your seniority is reinstated

This has to be a joke, satire right?

Your docs (google drive) should have been transferred to your former manager, so they should be available. Additionally, ask for your original start date to be restored since your time away has not been that long.

A lot of people seem to be pretty snarky with this question. It’s understandable given the chaos and uncertainty that has been surrounding all of us for years. But to actually answer your question, you can easily negotiate with your hiring manager to get your seniority back. I would actually recommend that you do so in terms of your original date of hire, especially with regard to severance. You don’t want to be punished for having been on severance for a few weeks and now start back at zero should they lay you off again.

Your u42 would likely be restored, but your files are probably in a digital dustbin in the cloud.

Good luck with whatever you and they decide.

The fact that you don't know Pearson policy on this matter means you don't have much seniority to begin with.

You’d be a bonafide id–t to return to this clown show.
