ExxonMobil's voluntary package was 4 months of pay, no matter how long you've been there. They also had an involuntary package, but I'm not sure of details. It was at least 2 weeks' pay for every year, max 1 year of pay, 2021 vacation days,

Shell should have upped the offer a little. Would have gotten many more takers this round. Something like 4wks/year with 2 years max. I would have jumped on it. Why would someone turn it down 6 months ago just to say yes now. From what I hear very very few takers this time. This round Shell will be forcing out employees who would rather stay.

BP paid 1 month for every year of service and 1.5 months per year if you had joined before 2009.

Chevron gave the same 3 weeks/service year, but they also cover health insurance for a full year and not 4 months only like Shell.

Take the three year per year severance and run. There may not be another SVS after this year.

Some parts of Shell may pay 4 weeks per year to a max of 2 years but keep in mind salaries in the US are higher so it balances out.

Oxy gave Anadarco folks 1 year regardless of years of service. I believe Pioneer did 1.5 years regardless of years of service. I think 3 weeks per year is pretty standard of E&P. It comes down to how much cost of settlement would cost if a lot of laid off folks where to sue. I'm sure if you have leverage you could hire an attorney and try to get more(individually or as a group). A lot of service companies got sued for OT a few years back.
