Thread regarding Noble Energy Inc. layoffs

Lawyer or class action?

Has anyone hired a lawyer to review the severance documents?
I’m assuming it’s not worth the battle, but wondering if anything is negotiable.

Everything is negotiable. Noble, as well as Chevron and every corp in America are afraid of getting sued. Don’t assume the package received on paper is the best they offer and absolutely, do not, I repeat, do not believe ANYTHING HR tells you! HR will tell you this is it or dont take it. Negotiate directly with the decision maker, not HR and not your boss. Ask to see the head of your managemnet group. Then sit down with them and say “Look, I know the company is wanting to go this way in the business world and I understand that and support it. I also know you need to reduce staff, and I am selected as one of those. I really do believe the current package offered me is lacking in a few items and I would like to talk this through with you.” Be humble, but straight up. You CAN NEGOTIATE! And, you have leverage. Don’t go in with a chip on your shoulder and dont say threaten with a lawyer. Be professional. Most reasonable people will listen and improve the package, one-on-one. Once you get a better package, keep quiet about it ... this is your families money and you will need it.

If your over 40 you are a member of a protected class. You have 90 days to review your package. Spending the money to have a professional employment attorney is a very smart investment. It can dramatically increase your package.
