Thread regarding Centene Corp. layoffs

Waiting for severance

How smart is it to wait for severance? I know a few people who're determined to leave but instead of looking for a new job they're waiting to be laid off so they can get severance. First, I think that's d-mb in general since you can never know if you're going to be on the list or not. They can end up waiting for years, which, if they can't wait to leave, is not ideal? And second, is severance even a sure thing? If I'm not mistaken, it's not in the law that a company needs to provide severance. It's not likely, but Centene is within its rights to stop giving packages, is it not? Or it can give a pitiful package of a couple of weeks' pay and that's that. I can't see an upside in waiting for severance for the life of me.

Start looking now. Very hard for older employees to find jobs.

Centene does also have an anti retaliation policy. Never hesitate to share your concerns with your leaders.

Hi there, If you are interested in separation of employment from the company, please engage with your manager and HR business partner. First use paid time off to find another job then request all your paid time off then do not return. Your manager and HR business partner will eventually notice.
Thanks!

#TeamCentene - thanks Captain Obvious! We all know that as soon as we speak to HR about issues with management, we are put on the layoff list as retaliation and buried under other layoffs so Centene doesn't get sued.

If you are unhappy with your jobs, then leave on your own accord. Even if you get laid off at some point there is no guarantee that the job market will be great at that time or if you get severance. I would never base my income on potential severance. I was one of the 3000 laid off laid off last year, and understand, like bonuses, the severance is heavily taxed. Be careful what you wish for.
