Thread regarding Robert Half International Inc. layoffs

Legal

Anyone else contemplating legal representation? These corporate mo–ns clearly had no idea how to handle this which is why it turned into a trainwreck on its way to the sh– show.

Goals at RH are achievable if you step on people and treat people like sh–. I am glad to never be part of this corrupt group ever again.

If you’re fired for cause, can you collect unemployment?

Maybe it’s a coincidence that so many are suddenly terminated for cause when companies are laying off in droves due to business downturn (or expected downturn) due to covid-19.

Also, California is an excellent place to file a lawsuit.

Actually, how about AnAttorneylaidoffbyRHL enlightens us as to how "Yes, COVID19 and performance do fit together," and especially how those two reasons for termination/layoff co-exist? Especially since, according to you, those two terms are basically interchangeable. I'd really like to know. If you're simply here to flex your degree - while telling other laid off (I mean terminated) individuals that they're stupid and so justifiably relieved of their livelihoods - please do go ahead and flex.

AnAttorneylaidoffbyRHL here is clearly one of those people who finds pleasure in making statements like, "The fact that you don't seem to understand this means they made a good choice in letting you go." Whether he/she is an actual laid off individual of RHL is questionable.

For your information, I was one of the employees with a tenure under 90 days (60 days to be exact) who was told on numerous occasions during that time what a great job I was doing. At no point was I told my performance was lacking. I was still in training and actually reaching my metrics. The official distinction I was given was a termination based on performance. Not a lay off based on Covid 19.

A termination is not the same thing as a layoff. Any attorney worth their salt knows that.

Exactly -not your time I'm wasting. Since you have zero clue as to what I am basing my complaints on, why don't you go binge watch Judge Judy or Netflix? Thanks!

I actually am an attorney and you have no case. People were laid off due to COVID 19 and the loss of revenue. WHOM they let go has to do with performance. They let go of low performers (for their Tenure) and people who were there less than 90 days. Yes COVID19 and performance do fit together. The fact that you don't seem to understand this means they made a good choice in letting you go. Still, visit an attorney. Not my time you're wasting.

I am actually contemplating legal recourse for wrongful termination. At will employment is often mistaken with the idea that an employer can do whatever they want with regard to letting go of an employee.

The problem with this situation is that they fired people for so-called low performance while simultaneously claiming it was to do with revenues lost due to COVID 19. Which is it? Why not just lay people off and call it a lay off as opposed to screwing them even harder by having it on record that you fired them and that info being available to a future employer? I, for one, am very curious how that distinction benefits RH in some way connected to the virus and the federal stimulus money coming their way.

At will employer, sure. Do whatever they want? No.

Wow-are you an attorney? Obviously not. And-I happen to know one very well. So thanks for the sentiment but since I have no job at the moment I'll do what I want in my copious free time.

Sounds good when you're upset, but not gonna happen. Trust me, your case will be thrown out faster than you were. 90% of "wrongful termination" cases have nothing to carry them.
You're an "at will" employee who can be terminated without notice. It's wrong but RH is within it's rights to terminate whomever they want. Justifying it is just icing on the cake. We're no different from temps. If you think I'm wrong you obviously don't know the law. At least California law
