Thread regarding Nordstrom layoffs

One month / zero information

My last day was June 19. I’m getting anxiety as the unemployment CARES Act ends this week. I haven’t received anything from Nordstrom to sign. I saw that they FINALLY put in a WARN Notice to WA State (a bit late) on July 17. Anyone have information on what is going on?

Call your prior Manager directly, if that does not work, call your Senior Manager and let them what's not happening. That's absolutely ridiculous ! Better yet Call and Email so you have record of your request. Can you Class Action Lawsuit ? WOW !I would have expected so much better from a company

Off and on, people told me cronies ran Nordstrom. I heard this from some folks on their way out. It appears there was some truth in it. All that family stuff is plain BS. No one really cares. If they did, something RIGHT would have happened. As someone said, we were conned before canned, and realizing now. Seriously, I regret giving the company so many years. It’s been a waste of time.

How can a company that boasts about being “family” just throw their very loyal and hardworking employees onto the street with hardly any notice? Then they are denying people their unemployment claims. I regret the decision to ever work there.

Unemployment denied. No paycheck, no severance. Job market is dry. Is there any class action going on? Please share.

This is so amateurish! I expected much better from Nordy. Is the HR still there or they got canned? I feel we didn’t get canned, we got conned.

It’s a long process. I worked at one of the stores that was closed permanently. We stopped working in March. We were told we would be let go in May. We received no communication till July about our packages. It’s madness. After you sign there is no communication. They give no eta on timeframe for payment. Mine just dropped in unannounced. It’s all just a game to them.

So, are they keeping us on “active” status on purpose so they don’t have to pay their share of unemployment claims? And then ignoring everyone with questions / concerns about any severance benefits (including PTO payout that we ALL EARNED as part of our compensation). I saved all of my documentation from my lay-off in case I have to defend myself. This all seems so incompetent and shady.

My WA unemployment got denied as Nordy indicates I resigned or declined to take another job. I received no calls no offers, nothing. I got the letter though. I am confused. I worked there 7 years. What’s going on?

It looks like Hayley from BusinessInsider has already moved on from the Nordstrom corpse to cover the Lane Bryant scoop. Well, make that two scoops.

I’ll be here all week, I recommend the veal scallopini, and don’t forget to tip your server.

Mine got denied, Nordstrom is reporting me as an employee. HR has been no help at all.

You may have to wait till Sept for severance documents. There is not enough $ to go around. Even sept is a stretch. Company is bankrupt! I filed claim with WA Unemployment and they notified, they are still waiting for a response. I called HR and they said, I am still an employee which is not true. Very frustrating! Very concerned
