Does anyone know how they came up with who to cut? Particularly AL level? I feel discriminated. Age or time with company? Please comment with subgroup size and years of service. Maybe we can find out collectively unless someone here already knows.

You feel discriminated? Toughen up. They let go of old/young, black/white, male/female. Stop being a libtard
Article in an industry rag today quoting Larry Hughes and Teresa Bowers talking about “accelerating diversity, equity, and inclusion at 7-Eleven” also stating it’s not only the right thing to do, but business imperative.
Did we really want to be part of this company? We live in an era now where these huge conglomerates can destroy entire cities without any repercussions. Love capitalism but layoffs should only be for the companies losing money. This one along with hedge funds are nothing but greedy. Unions should be the stop gap for these events but even they are all about the money. Normal folks don't have a chance.
Doesn't matter what you signed. If company committed an illegal act, no contract will give them immunity from that. Companies only make you sign to give you the illusion that you cannot sue.
Probably why so many outstanding performers got laid off. Large companies use algorithms to ensure the balance of groups laid off to avoid discrimination. However, smaller groups/departments might not have used an algorithm. If you signed the severance package, it doesn’t necessarily mean there’s no way to litigate. You’re signing under extreme duress usually. Contact a labor lawyer that works on spec if you feel you’ve been discriminated against, especially if your mm was stupid enough to say something referencing your age, s-x or protected class during your firing.
I’m pretty sure if you accepted the severance you signed away right to sue. There may be something there though when you review scorecards and seeing who stayed and who got severed, in particular in area leader ranks. A good sleuth would go straight to the scorecards.
I don’t think there was any discrimination really. Old/Young, Tenured and Newly Hired, Bi/Straight, White/Mexican/Asian/African American.
I’ll be honest though, it does seem like the people who worked the longest and the people who worked the shortest got laid off.
It’s weird though because we also have people who are halfway in the FC training who still got to keep their jobs.
Based on who I know got laid off there was some algorithm to prevent discrimination lawsuits
Age, race, time in company, gender, department
I knew newly hired to 30+ years
Black, white, asian, etc
G-y, straight, bi
25yr old to 60 yr olds
