Will there be a 60 day notice for laid off employees? Will the employee be paid for those 60 days in addition to the severance?

During the last ROM, they tell you two dates. Your final date in office, and your final date as a CVX employee. This second date is based on a 6-week transition period, after the final date in office. Some people were asked to work part of that time, others were sent out almost immediately. I was asked to work 2 more weeks, to hand over my duties to another person, and then my 6-week transition started afterwards. During the transition period, you still get full benefits, full paychecks, just like usual. The 8-week severance pay comes later on, after your transition phase is over, and you sign a release form that they Fedex to you, and return it.

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 can give you a 60 day severance payment in lieu of the notice. That's why people get 8 week severance, in that case they do not want to file anything.
But if they give you 60 days of pay in lieu of a notice, they do not have to worry about the requirement
Short answer is "yes". Because of the size (number of employees) being laid off in this next round, the notice period of 60 days is stipulated by law in the WARN rules. The company is obligated to give the affected employees a 60 day notice of their termination date. Because of the large number of employees to laid off, the business units will likely opt (as they have the last time) to send those employees home, instead of keeping them at the office (as some smaller business units have done also). So, effectively, those who will get a notice, will be taking a 60 day vacation before actually being severed from the company. I would urge those in that position to look for work and go to interviews, but try to keep your Job hunting as low key as possible. Remember that you are technically still an employee of Chevron during this 60 day period. You may accept a job offer if one is given to you, but do not start the new job until after the notice period is over. Otherwise you may jeopardize your severance pay if you are not careful.
Read the esp site, all the info is there. It's the same as alpha last year.
