There are some bitter people on these posts. How can you be upset with 8 weeks of pay? If they give it to you, they're wrong ... if they don't give it to you, they're wrong. Good luck at Sprouts

Eight weeks my ass. They fired over 15 people today telling them they have until tomorrow to decide which "package" they want
By law they're required to give employees 60 day notice of layoffs. By paying us 8 weeks, they get around this law. It's called pay in lieu of notice. It's not them being compassionate, it's just them avoided lawsuits.
They are hoping that some folks will jump the ship on their own, that helps with severance (they do not have to pay it). It's a standard management maneuver.
