I still work at UHC on Provider Service department we were told that the department is over staff. They are telling us that we should apply for other positions within the company but nothing else.
I am a former employee of UHC. I have friends who still work there, all have 10-20 years with the company. They are being told that there will be layoffs in provider services department very soon. They are being given the opportunity to apply for other positions within the company. If they cannot find another position, they will be laid off. UHC is laying off at least 500 employees and moving these positions off shore.
When talking about UHG and WARN, remember, many of their acquisitions are still doing business under their legacy name behind the scenes. If a WARN exists, you might need to look in that state under the original company.
Also... Fortune 500 is a thing.
Fortune 6... spouted by those that don't realize Fortune 500 is the thing.
Am I wrong? Let's see that annual list of Forbe's Fortune 6.
More layoffs today 04/25/2019
I enjoyed, “ United will continue to Grow”. Says Who? The UNH troll says so. Well, the employees and the provider base and the subscribers are the three most important constituents. The employees are intimidated and treated like sickly livestock. The provider base despises this company and would prefer anything else. See the fight UNH started with the Northwestern Medical Group. Take a discount so the Pacificare denial team can pull down a bigger bonus. They need more expensive homes in Redondo Beach. It takes work thinking up those denial schemes. Lastly, we have the subscriber. The subscriber pays more and more and gets less and less. But it’s not just less. It’s less with arrogance and attitude. United will continue to grow. Yes it will grow it’s portfolio of Class Action Lawsuits and False Claims Actions. Hahahaha!
Make a List of as many employees that you can find who were laid off. Then sue under the WARN act. You get 60 days pay plus benefits in most states. In some states you get 90 days pay. HR Direct gives out lots of misinformation. Are you surprised? One HR VP had her husband fined by the SEC for Insider Trading based on UNH deals. Another UNH “lay-off specialist” sells Beauty Counter Products. Hey, if your not working, you might as well wear nice lipstick ( Alicia - That is You!). Fortune 6 Company run like a Candy Store. Hahahaha!
yeah; they dont want the news out; bad for stock;
There was a massive layoff yesterday affecting anywhere from 1500 - 3000 people (depending on where you get your information).
Nothing in the news..??
Your words s---, people are just layed off and all you have to be is sarcastic...I have 2 words for you AH.
@VTpwnt1-Hyuo Why are you so upset over this? Did your redundant position get eliminated and now you're just left bitterly trolling anonymous message boards posting propaganda?
another question: where do remote employees fit in? What "site" are they a part of?
I have several questions about the WARN act -- the wording states:
A “mass layoff” is defined as a reduction in force that: (1) is not the result of a plant closing; and (2) results in an employment loss at the single site of employment during any 30-day period for either:
At least 33% of the employees (excluding any part-time employees) and at least 50 employees (excluding any part-time employees); or
At least 500 employees (excluding any part-time employees).
example: a site has 150 employees. 33% of 150 =49
question: can they lay off 49 employees without notice because it does not meet the 50 employee requirement?
Example: a site has 300 employees. 33% of 300 = 99
Question: can they lay off 98 people without notice?
Example: a site has 600 employees but 400 are part time.
Question: Can they lay off all 600 people without warning because they have only 200 full time workers?
I checked with the agency that enforces the WARN Act in my state, and they said this company is notorious for not complying with the WARN Act, and an inquiry is underway
Don't be shy
If your employer fails to provide you the notice required under the Federal WARN act (and a similar act in most of the 50 states), file a complaint with your State WARN agency and / or consult with the appropriate attorney
Remember, once you are notified of a layoff, your employer must pay you for 60 days before your severance starts. Don't walk away from 60 days of pay
If your employer selected you for a layoff, under Federal law, your employer is required to give you 60 days notice (and pay you for those 60 days).
The 60 days is in addition to any severance you may be entitled to. This is required under the Federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act
In most states, there is also a state agency that enforces a similar law
If your employer does not give you 60 days notice (and / or does not pay you for those 60 days), you may file a complaint with these state agencies. These are only a handful of agencies
If your state is not listed here, please type state name Warn Act in any search engine to identify the agency for your state
Since WARN started as a Federal law, please review this information:
Minnesota’s Mini-WARN Act
Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act
Connecticut Department of Labor
New Jersey Business Closing/Mass Layoff Notification Law
New York State Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act
Arizona Department of Economic Security
Illinois Department of Commerce and Local Workforce Innovation Areas (LWIAs)
Commonwealth of Massachusetts or the Department of Career Service (DCS) Rapid Response team
N.C. Department of Commerce Division of Workforce Solutions
Texas Workforce Commission
United will continue to grow
