How is it okay to force people to do this? It's not enough that you're forcing us out in the middle of the pandemic, but you're then blackmailing us into training our Serbian replacements or else we won't even get the severance? Talk about humiliating! I really hope this comes back and bites you in the a–. Nobody should treat their American employees like this!

First of all the severance is not all its cut out to be. That 13 17 or 21 weeks will scream right by then you're into 26 weeks of unemployment. In Georgia you'll get an extra $300 a week now making your weekly unemployment paycheck $600 a week. The good news is there are many more reputable companies hiring right now so this would just be a bump in the road for you. Also, if they're holding severance over your head then NCR is a lot lower of a company then when I left. Severance is policy and part of their rif package so unless they change the policy then they're blowing smoke up your a-s like the bullies they are. Get a hard copy of the rif package so your lawyer can use it against them if they really try and pull that BS on you. My advice is you get your resume updated and out there. You could also stick around to the end and play their game. Give those replacements the worst training you possibly can without being obvious.
How long did you work there? Is training your replacement worth the severance pay? I guess there are factors we don’t know.
Think about how you want to leave. You may never come back to NCR but you may cross paths with managers in future roles.
I am just thinking in next 2 years only CEO and Top level mgmt. will work in US and rest all from serbia. More RIF!!
This isn’t the only time either with this scenario. We had to move and make or create knowledge in the shared database for the Serbs. Some teams were benign and created so good knowledge others who have seen or been in this situation knew what was happening and theirs, well was sub par, cryptic and incomplete. And I have proudly heard how much it made that department struggled. I was ask if I would go train them but turned away from it. I’ve been in that scenario 3 times since 2002. Turned each one down and concentrated on finding a new job in or out of ncr. My job outside of ncr in 2017 I got hurt and am now disabled.
Yes they need reported. And as for the ceo making and extra 9 million last year says a lot
Yep, a big crock of sh– is what NCR is. I'd rather the Cheeta logo sky over 85 South than this big waste of a building.
It's like the husband making the ex-wife whom he betrayed to wait on the new wife for little sc-ap of alimony. What would you do if you were that ex? That is just so evil. Now if you were to "trip and fall" on the job while training them and then go on disability? Or get a nervous breakdown from all the stress and outrage of losing your job and having to train your replacements - and go on disability? I am not one to condone planned injuries on the job to squeeze money from the company but no one will blame you if you did just that. Or do some deep digging to find something compromising to be a potential whistleblower. They definitely have it coming to them.
Or you can graciously train replacements and part ways with the severance and move on. Leave early and take long lunches or come in late because of "job interviews" which will take away training time. You really have nothing to lose since they know after screwing you royally that they can't trust you to come back to work a different role in the same company.
Regardless, you have more leverage than you think - although it will not get you your job back. Based on my experience with companies who do that, they will not get loyalty or respect from their remaining existing employees. Those employees will run off when the job market gets better and company will end up a mess. A company never benefits from screwing over their employees. Then they will get rid of management to help boost employee morale later. Just so you are aware that these crooks in management will get what they deserve later and nobody will feel sorry for them.
sudden brain fade, forget some critical steps, what ever it takes. New NCR leaders are crooks
