Thread regarding Halliburton Co. layoffs

AMEX after Layoff

When I got laid off I still had a balance on my Corporate AMEX. Halliburton has not paid it and closed my account. I am now getting bills from AMEX saying my account is closed and last due. Is anyone having this problem? What has anyone done to clear this up or correct? I sure hope this is not tied to my credit.

It’s cute you think you can take Halliburton to small claims court. Unless you have proof that it was work related and that you attempted to follow the policy to submit expenses, you lose.

Well it is tied to your credit so there is that, but yes you need to reach out to HR and you need to do it soon cause they will not pay your late fees.

Why didn’t you use your work address when you signed up for the card? Amex sends the card to your office you pick it up and if there’s a balance after you leave, not your problem! And like a previous post mentioned, it does not go against your credit if the bill isn’t paid

Your amex isnt tied to your credit, its halliburton's problem. Call amex, but its nothing to worry about.

Why wouldn't you simply try calling first? There is no dispute if they aren't refusing to pay it and simply are not aware of it.

Just contact the HR rep you dealt with. Your manager probably didn’t let anyone know about it or was laid off too. It isn’t that big of a deal or hard to get taken care of...

Call HR ask for manager. Tell them you are going to small claims court if it’s less than a few 1000.
Otherwise tell them you are getting a lawyer and notifying the DOJ and the district attorney.

Maybe try reaching out to your point of contact with HR, the person who went over severance, benefits, etc. with you. They seem to be the only ones who actually help. (Do everything you can through email so there's written documentation, just in case.) Good luck!
