Thread regarding L3Harris Technologies layoffs

Happy New Year... oh, and we cannot ship your orders!

"Last year is gone, a new year is here with us, and we feel so lucky to have you as our customer. We look forward to a new year full of new opportunities and offers that we will extend to you. Have a prosperous New Year."

Oh, and that Purchase Order... ??? Well, it's now another six months before we can ship!
Have a nice day! (wink)

"In most cases, L3H cannot invoice the customer until the item ships."

Taking the Purchase Order and accepting terms to be able to provide the product while knowing that you cannot... try doing an online search as to what the legal term for this is. (Hint: it starts with an "F")

"The Sarbanes-Oxley Act is a product of a series of scandals that took place around the turn of the millennium. Several publicly traded companies—Enron and WorldCom were two of the most prominent—used accounting trickery, shell corporations, and other fraudulent techniques to hide business losses from the public and keep stock prices artificially high. Executives and board members used this deception to enrich themselves, cashing out and leaving investors (and, in Enron's case, employees who had been urged put their retirement into company stock) holding the bag when the deception could no longer be maintained and the stock price collapsed."

Hmmm....

Just the mere act of taking a purchase order and agreeing to the Terms and Conditions establishes a contract, where both parties are held to performing as the agreement provides. So, taking a Purchase Order KNOWING that you cannot ship items is, well... perhaps the Federal Trade Commission will have the last word once customers start to get wise to the L3H practices?

In most cases, L3H cannot invoice the customer until the item ships. Some front-office bigwig was counting on those 2020 sales. And some OTHER front-office bigger-wig was breathing down the neck of the first big-wig to get those sales in. So I doubt there was much winking going on. Unless the even-bigger-wig winked at the HR hitman to get rid of the smaller wigs.
