I can certainly understand HDS restructuring, but laying off employees stating that position is no longer required or company heading in a different direction then turnaround and carry out the same job functions using contractors/remote offshore cheap labor resources?
I understand employment is "AT WILL" but replacing american employees in favor of cheap offshore resources. This is definitely a "Breach of Good Faith and Fair Dealing" according to the US labor law. In fact the contracting/offshore resource are inferior in skills than the impacted employees.
I am a current employee and can attest this is happening across the board . I can keep a blind eye, but very difficult to digest and accept. I might be the next one out the door.
