Yesterday found out 40 people laid off. Some by March 4 2020 and the rest in July. We were told by director as they read off a script. How cold. More to come. This company does not give a rats a– about their employees. I hope they suffer. Outsourcing to Ireland is just wrong. All they care about is saving money. 16 months and I retire.

They are systematically laying off telecommuters in each round.
Optum most certainly did NOT terminate all American telecommuters. PLEASE have your facts straight before you post and consider how not doing so is causing a lot of unnecessary stress and anxiety, which is not fair and also cruel. These are our livelihoods- years of dedication, a source of pride and accomplishment, means of supporting our families in possible jeopardy. Please be cognizant that some of our fellow co-workers may not have a back up plan (and not by choice) or the ability to cope well at this time for any multitude of reasons. We need FACTS so that we may prepare for the reality of the situation- IF it happens- not opinions and misinterpretations. THINK before you SPEAK.
Re: “ UHC terminated 5000 American employees in February. Optum terminated all American telecommuters.”
Is the plan to terminate all American telecommuters? I ask because I am an American Optum telecommuter, and I still have my job... today.
UHC terminated 5000 American employees in February. Optum terminated all American telecommuters.
What location were the 40 people laid off?
