Thread regarding Weatherford International Ltd. layoffs

RIF'ed Today

I was RIF'ed today and wanted to let people know that your accrued vacation time will not be paid out to you UNLESS you live in these state: AK, CA, IL, LA, ND, MD, CO & WY. I was surprised by this and lost a few days.

TAKE YOUR VACATION on a regular basis as there is no sense in accumulating it just to lose it...

Those states have laws requiring that companies MUST PAY for any accrued vacation time, PTO, and the likes. It is wise for everyone to research and read their respective states labor laws to know exactly what is required from the company. (Like North Dakota has different labors laws than Texas does.) I had a company in ND RIF me, and then try to force me to sign a non-compete in order for me to receive a severance package. (Completely illegal, btw)
