What state? What department? I was laid off on Aug 30th as well, trying to get a petition together for a trade act certification. They are clearly backfilling these US based jobs with “OGS” positions. https://www.doleta.gov/tradeact/
This will at least help those of us who are affected get some training and re-enter the job force.
Keep yapping while collecting that check, Batman. You have no credibility. Put your money where your big, annoying, repetitive mouth is. Till then, STFU.
Hiring Indians by the hundreds.
Robin - potty mouth so shame on you. Yes, Freedom of Speech is assured by the US Constitution. It is Batman not Bathman. Bathman is a toy the HR workers use while setting unlawful RIFs. Did you notice that the Commentator was Pedro? Just another violation of Title 7 by Robin and the HR team. Let’s guess which community college Robin attended. Yes, Minnetonka Community School of Poor Spelling and Violation of Human Rights. Robin, you embody the company values. You are a Winner ( Loser).
Do you think you will be laid off by your employer?
If you were part of a layoff or you anticipate being part of a layoff, please learn about the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN)
This Federal law indicates that your employer must give you 60 days written notice before the layoff , and your employer must paid you for those 60 days.
For example, let's say you are eligible for 4 months severance pay, your employer must pay you for 60 days, as part of WARN, and then your severance pay starts, which means you will be paid for 6 months, not four months.
Since WARN is a Federal law, it applies to everyone, regardless of where you live
Will your employer give you the WARN notice, and pay you for those 60 days? Not necessarily. Since you probably don't know about this law, you can't complain about what you don't know about.
Furthermore, your employer can try to manipulate the facts to avoid giving you the 60 days notice, and avoid paying you for those 60 days. For example, your employer might layoff people in groups to qualify for a loophole in the law dealing with the number of people being laid off at one time.
Please review this document to learn how your employer can be penalized if they don't provide 60 days notice before a layoff and don't pay you for those 60 days.
Certain states have their own WARN law. Why should you care about this? In some cases, your State's WARN law protects you more than the Federal law. To determine whether your state has a WARN law, please type WARN Minnesota in any search engine (replace Minnesota with your state)
You can learn more about the Minnesota-specific WARN law here
We don't recommend you discuss WARN with you manager or human resources representatives.
If your employer does not provide you 60 days notice before a layoff, and does not pay you for those 60 days, file a complaint with the Federal Department of Labor (DOL) and / or your State agency that enforces WARN
Meanwhile Bathman submitted his timecard.. and is getting paid to sh--talk the company LOL -
See Chauca v Abraham. United Health Group can’t claim RIF since there were no WARN notices. These are organized criminal acts. Your employment record has probably been sanitized to make you look bad. “Kelly the Great” has probably removed anything positive. Send HR Direct a preservation notice electronically. Then go for triple punitive damages. Refuse the severance. Isn’t it a little odd that the 10-k says how great business is and there is an emergency need for an unlawful RIF? Thank the Enron boys!
Not exactly. A Reduction in Force requires a proper WARN notice. Report them to the Department of Labor and let the fines accrue. The anonymous replies are paid UNH trolls. The trolls read these entries phonetically so please give them some extra time. We all know that HR Direct is filled with mo--ns. Right Kelly? Sound it out - You can do it!
What area, what state?
