Thread regarding Broadcom Corp. layoffs

Broadcom HR

Does Broadcom HR follow these posts? Because I’m wondering why HR sets policy that has no teeth? I’ve been working from home every week. My team we all ignore the rotation schedule, just leaving our phones at desk. Had to go in the office the other day to grab my back massager. Saw other teams in there. Not sure if they are s—ers or gullible peasants? I dare Broadcom to terminate me over this. They have no case.

@2ohk+16zsvDcg. Totally agree. Nobody wants to work here anyway, we don't attract top talent... and yes work from office is a total non-starter. of the people i know who moved on they're all WFH....

"They have no case" ???? I think it's pretty risky just making an assumption like that unless you've had multiple lawyers look at your situation and assure you of this.

I would definitely recommend talking to an attorney before you make assumptions about what kind of case you have and what kind of case Broadcom has. But even then keep in mind that COVID19 is putting a lot of things in uncharted territory and even the best attorneys can only guesstimate what sort of liability courts will decide employers have. I'm no lawyer or expert but I think it's risky just assuming you would win a big lawsuit.

meh... they'll either eliminate job or tell your manager to make life extremely miserable for you to the point you'll quit.

Nice job! On our team we have open roles, but cannot even get people to interview for the roles we have. Working in an office during pandemic is a non starter

@njq+16zsvDcg exactly. they'll get rid of whomever they can and trust me the position elimination excuse is. how they'll do it. anyone who thinks they aren't going to cut heads again in this quarter or next is a fool.

otoh, i suspect it's extremely hard to find anyone who would work for Broadcom. people are shocked when i tell them we're at 50% occupancy. the laff their arse off.

i'm close to an offer so should be out of this sh–hole by end of month....

good luck to you guys.

Yes I’m in my 60’s and I’m also in California. In any circumstance they will still need a case, a strong one. At a minimum a mountain of paper work awaits them. So I will repeat what I originally said, I dare them. I would be set for life after.

Rotation policy has no teeth.

"I dare Broadcom to terminate me over this. They have no case. ". Broadcom, or any other employer in the US, barring a contract does not need "a case" to fire anyone. They can simply tell you that your position has been eliminated. Now firing you for cause and denying you severance is a different story, but they could certainly get rid of you. I think part of this is being done to get older employees to quit. If you are under 50 you really don't have much to worry about with COVID 19, but the odds get worse and worse every year after that.
