An employee with 6 years of eligible service who is laid off is eligible for 4 weeks of severance
pay under the Basic Benefit. Upon the return of a signed general release of liability, the
employee is eligible for an additional 14 weeks of severance (18 weeks enhanced benefits – 4

I’m surprised you guys won’t do better than the typical COP severance as the COP leadership s—s at negotiating and your management probably negotiated circles around them. Good luck.
I wouldn't think so, that's only for vacation time. Be my guess.
if you moved from a different company to Concho do the years of service carry forward to concho? Reason I ask is they do this to determine vacation time.
It would help a little if this was the case for the severance package.
3 weeks of pay for every year of service. So if you have been with Concho 10 years, you get 30 weeks of severance. Not great. Welcome to the ConocoPhillips way of doing things.
