With Dean Foods using all kinds of underhanded methods to get rid of employees - such as firings for no reason - is it even realistic to expect to receive any kind of severance once the next round of layoffs arrives? They don't even seem to care about appearances anymore, so I wouldn't be surprised if they just told us that there's no severance.

Who cares about the corporate employees they were c-ap anyway
Corporate employees that were laid off prior to May 1 only got the customary 60 days WARN payment.
Some companies do their employees a favor by closing down and layoffs. The Employees soon realize after the dismissal that they were to loyal to the Company, and the Company were not loyal to them.
Dean Foods had the worst management from the top to the supervisors at the plants. Most were incompetent and the rest usually had no dairy background. Just an incompetent company. I'm surprised that they actually ran for that long making mistake after mistake.
Nobody at Berkeley Farms got a severance either.
I have heard no severance for people who were notified of leaving from 4/15/20 onward.
Also, people owed severance by agreements signed by Dean prior to 4/15/20 were advised that their last payment would be on 4/15/20 - no further payments as they were "running out of money".
The only people who got severances after Dean Foods declared bankruptcy were the salaried employees and execs, although they called it a bonus and not severance.
Would only expect DFA to pay severance if closing a plant in order to incentivize employees to stay until the end and doubt severance will be as much as Dean Foods used to offer. Doubt there will be any severance for just layoffs without a closing.
We got no severance in Hawaii.
I wouldn’t expect a severance unless a location was scheduled to be closed, in which they may offer a severance to keep people working and the plant running up to a certain date.
No there not giving severance they are gonna lighten the load as much as they can
