Thread regarding Cummins Inc. layoffs

Don’t know why this is called a layoff. This is down right termination, or forced early retirement. Aka, age discrimination.

Makes you wonder how Cummins wins all those id–tic ethics awards.

I posted this earlier, but Cummins strategically cuts staff as to not appear discriminatory. When I was let go in 2015 after being ranked a 1/high pot a few months earlier!!, they gave me a list of those being let go in my function by age, gender, title since I was over 40. They had at least one male, one female, one white, one black, one Hispanic,etc., then one in their 20s, 30s, 40s, etc. So regardless of my performance, I checked the demographic check box, over 10 years seniority and higher salary...which by the way they promoted me 3 times in 10 years and I never applied for a role! They protect themselves from lawsuits, they have this 3-5 year RIF down to a science. I wish someone could find a way for a class action lawsuit for unfair terminations. I totally agree though that they discriminate on seniority and salary, and in an odd way, if you are checking a particular "demographic" box.

Exactly, exactly. It doesn't make sense they come up with a ranking system and then decide not to use those same numbers to keep you. So you have a 1 and still get fired over a 2 or 3. I still say that cummins may soon find themselves in a lawsuit over age discrimination and/or even racial discrimination.
