Thread regarding Medtronic Inc. layoffs

Everybody over 40 is a target at Medtronic

If you're over 40, you're a target for Layoffs here. I worked in HR for years at Medtronic, they were always talking about the workforce being "older" (wink-wink, nudge-nudge...aka, get rid of the older workers one way or another). Can't believe there hasn't been an investigation or mass lawsuit yet.

Perfectly stated, @VTN4PPH-4Emkv. It's sad to see such rampant age discrimination happening without any consequences. None of us older employees are safe...

Rarely do you find a young person being laid off at Medtronic. They are also laying off older people and shifting those jobs to contractor positions, eliminating employee benefits and often paying half the salary. Gone are the days when they valued their employees. There was a day when they truly valued every level of employee but those days are long gone.

My law firm is investigating claims of age discrimination against Medtronic related to termination/promotion decisions from its recent RIF. If you have any information about Medtronic's alleged discriminatory practices, please contact Halunen Law at (612) 605-4098 or email Clayton Halunen at: halunen@halunenlaw.com. Thank you.

Worked for Medtronic many years and age discrimination is real with respect to wage and promotion opportunity stagnation. Opportunity goes to the lower paid and with least experience. They hire many immigrant H1b visa employees because they can get away paying lower wages and then they are stuck there or risk there visa.

Yup. I was one of those affected ones. They do cover their asses very well with their severance package and all the legal forms we need to sign to get it.

Medtronic s—s a– for older employees. Ironic that this is the population that most likely will utilize Medtronic products.

My advice, DON'T sign the separation agreement! Take it to a lawyer first. Then negotiate a better package, and if they don't agree, sue them. They typically will just pay you off instead of going through litigation. Maybe they will give more thought about their precious "fair layoffs".
