Is there any way we can anticipate our layoff? Does anything happen before? Different behaviour of your manager, not getting new projects or anything similar? Is a layoff even possible to anticipate?

My director was avoiding me for about a week before I got cut on last Mon. She is usually not like this.
Do you work on HANA? https://www.brightworkresearch.com/saphana/2019/03/08/saps-layoffs-and-a-brightwork-warning-on-hana/
Some groups were not especially surprised - lots of hiring & new projects in Germany/Asia last year but not in the US, or poor income for some products - and the past few weeks many were worried that not enough people were taking an early retirement being offered in some divisions.
But at least one group I know had just (two weeks ago) gotten Waldorf $$approval for a major new product initiative. They were more than a little surprised to have all their US employees laid off.
So you can never tell 100%.
