UnitedHealth Group (UHC & Optum) will be laying off employees (Aka Reduction in Force or RIF) on Wednesday, 03/04/20 or Thursday, 03/05/20.
UHG has being laying off employees for 2 years in waves. They do this so they can void the Warn Act and keep the layoffs out of the news. I have predicated many of these layoffs as I have an inside source in HR in MN. UHG has increased the layoffs since early 2019.
Confirmed lay off dates as I know of today.
10) 03/04/20 Wednesday-Optum will be hit hard but layoffs will occur across all of UHG.
11) 03/05/20 Thursday. Optum will be hit hard but layoffs will occur across all of UHG.
Anyone laid off in 2018 and from January 2019 - September 2019. Please provide the exact date you were laid off so we can update the list.
Maybe this might get news coverage once we have all the layoff dates.
David Wichmann started the layoff waves when he became CEO on September 1, 2017.
WHEN you are offered a severance they have you sign an agreement to NOT sue which is why this has not made the headlines. Karma will catch up!
