Anyone that was laid off around the nation expecting a child to be born soon and informed management that they were going to be taking parental bonding leave get laid off? Was just wondering how many people this happened to and if maybe it had anything to do with informing management about taking the parental bonding leave and management not wanting to pay the bonding time so they laid them off.

I have not been laid off but was asked by management to take the parental bond leave pay out instead of the time because there is not enough staff to cover my work while I am out for 8 weeks.
Can’t wait till it’s only managers left... miller is trying to run the company into the ground. Glad I’m done with it now.
Stupid question, but most of these Halliburton locations are in “Right to Work” states. Why wouldn’t these id–ts form a union to protect their seniority and benefits like vacation and bonding time? My coworker was laid off with 30 years. How sh–ty is that!
Trying to figure out if this is a common occurrence because if so people may have a reason to take legal action because of discrimination
The company has turned really shi&^y towards the common employees by targeting and laying off 'older' employees and replacing them with younger ones who don't know anything. Same goes for going to the new pro-rated system for vacation. Wouldn't be surprised at them axing someone for getting ready to take maternal/paternal leave.
It happened to a coworker. She came back from FMLA and asked to take her bonding leave and was laid off that same week. Wondering if she would still have her job if she would have not asked for it
