Thread regarding Scientific Games Corp. layoffs

How is the layoff handled? A meeting, a call, a group meeting?

How does the actual act of communicating that you've been laid off from SG happen?

Do they call you in a conference room? Who is there? What do they tell you? How long does it take?

Can you work with a non-competitor and still receive severance? Or do they terminate severance once another job has been acquired? Also, is the severance a lump sum or paid out every two weeks based on years accumulated?

Likely depends on your position. But being a low level workerbee, I can vouch for the above. Called by manager, brought to HR, signed papers, warned not to be on property without an escort, walked out 15-20 minutes later to vehicle like a common criminal. That last part is what it felt like, but thank the nut jobs of the world for that. They have to consider safety of everyone that works there. But, you would think they could do something show you a little more dignity. Alas, it is the same all over. Welcome to big corporate America.

Actually a little different per person, depending on your department & manager. A co-worker of mine was laid off via the mobile phone because the manager works remotely, an hour later the manager received a call from HR and another manager reporting the same news. A manager IM'd me via that awesome Skype app saying "Can you please come to my office now?". Then I walk into the office with an HR rep with a thick envelope of paperwork and a big smile! 15 minutes later I was escorted out.

Two weeks/year. I worked for the company for five years, so my severance is 10 weeks. What's totally insane is that there going to attempt to enforce a 6-month non-compete, when it clearly states that my non-compete is only for the period of my "package". So, after 10 weeks, I'm free, while their stating that it's 26 weeks.

can any "recently let go" employee tell us what the severance package consisted of? Last year it was 2weeks pay for every year of service... Is it now lower?

First they call you into a conference room with a member of HR and priest, The priest will say something to you in Latin. But you will more that likely not understanding what he is saying, unless of course you are fluent in Latin. But then again if you were, you would have been able to read the Scientific Games business plan and bailed a year or two ago. So to continue, they will give you an envelope and a "Gavin Will Fix It" T-shirt of which they have a couple thousand waiting in a storeroom and that they are pretty darned excited about being able to finally get rid of. That is pretty much it...
