Layoffs happen. I get that. But to be handled by the worlds most incompetent HR team, terrible comms, ignoring requests, no follow ups, being stiffed on severance (ie virtually nothing) and being told "see you in court if you don't like it - so sue us ..." is not a professional way to do it. I'm glad I'm out and have found a brilliant new role - but this whole experience has left a v v bad taste in my mouth. They wouldn't even remove the non compete clause (6 months!) I for one will never ever pass on or assist TD in the future for any possible analytics opps I might come across. They are firmly assigned to the history bin. If I was still there, I'd certainly be looking to bail.

The August 31 lay-off was bungled by a Sept 1 change in who managed benefits. Bunch of used up turds hiring the cheapest to keep heads above water.
you will find very few instances anywhere in the country where a noncompete stood up in court. Not just litigious california :-)
This company should be ashamed. It’s well known that HR is and has been incompetent for years... I’m sorry that happened to you but I can’t say that I’m surprised. And they laid you off AND expect you to honor a non-compete? Uh - that’s not even legal in CA and I doubt enforceable anywhere else either. You have a right to make a living for goodness sake. Are you supposed to change your profession, too? This company has become a joke.
Non-compete clauses are basically illegal and unenforceable in California.
