Having worked as a Customer Service employee for over 7 years, I was laid off on October, 22, 2015. There is nothing in the severance package to indicate having been "fired for cause". But when I apply for unemployment, that will be the point where the truth will come out. There is NO reason whatsoever for me to have been fired for cause.
It is my understanding that NRG is taking a different direction with spinning off the renewable energy portion of the company into a separate entity.
I wish all at my former employer, NRG well in their future pursuits.
