Thread regarding AT&T layoffs

Very, very clever.... WARN REPORTS

Mass layoff timed just right so numbers won’t appear on the report until next reporting cycle.

Example the California cutoff was January 25....layoff is January 28 (Monday)

WARN notice requires specific numbers of affected workers in single location. Since most if not all are spread all over the country they don't ever hit the requirement for WARN unless they close a center somewhere. Of course that only at state level reporting and rarely gets any media coverage.

It's almost as if they have a legal department to research this...

Also, there is a rule 60, meaning that if you provide 60 days of severance (at least) that counts like a 60 day WARN notice.

See the copy/paste thing below:

On the 60 Days Notice Question

Here is a collection of previous posts on this topic:

WARN requires 60 notice or 60 days pay in lieu of notice

I am receiving the 60 days pay plus health insurance in lieu of notice.

If the company designates that severance benefits are made in lieu of WARN notice, then unemployment benefits may be delayed for up to 60 days.

File today. If you sign an agreement that severance was paid in lieu of notice, then benefits may be delayed 60 days. The April agreement did not say that severance was in lieu of notice and people collected beginning the first full week they were unemployed.

By law they're required to give employees 60 day notice of layoffs. By paying us 8 weeks, they get around this law. It's called pay in lieu of notice. It's not them being compassionate, it's just them avoided lawsuits.

They can give you a 60 day severance payment in lieu of the notice. That's why people get 8 week severance, in that case they do not want to file anything.

60 day notice - Will there be a 60 day notice for laid off employees? Will the employee be paid for those 60 days in addition to the severance?

Typical corporate shadiness. My husband was let go after 20 years, stellar performance appraisals, multiple IDA’s. His boss swears he had no idea and no input, strictly based on job title and location.

My last job had rumors swirling of office closures for years. HO said no way, never. Then VP’s showed up one day out of the blue, told the entire staff of 400 that office was closing effective 30 days. Could either take severance or move cross-country to different office. Made announcement, upended 400 lives, back on their corporate jet a few hours later like it was nothing.

They don’t care about employees. None of them do.
