Read recent posts on BP layoffs. HR and Management will drum all kind of false information to not give employees a severance package. You will pay the consequences of not signing the severance package under BP now explicit terms; terms that BP kept silent while you were employed.
Talking about transparency, BP is not known for that. Do not count on BP acting compliant. The way BP treats soon to be ex-employees, similar to many firms, will convey BP's true values & behaviors. Remember "integrity" never made it to the list.
This is Originally a post that i took from another threat ( @VSzshYf-buze ). This is some good advice. We should all get familiar with our rights, as we can’t count on the company to be fair in this situation.
