Thread regarding Group Inc. layoffs

Thanks for completely screwing me over

I was laid off as part of the layoffs on March 29, 2019. I hadn't even been with the company for a year before they threw me under a bus. That goes double for the severance package. For those of you looking for info on the severance package, here is the info that was provided in a FAQ packet that was provided as part of the layoff:

"Employees impacted by the restructuring will receive two weeks of base wages for each year of service with a minimum of 2 weeks, maximum of 26 weeks. To receive severance, an employee must return all company owned property and sign/return their severance agreement."

In other words, since I was employed with for less than a year, I only get a single pay period's worth of pay as part of my severance package. Last time I was unemployed, it took me almost half a year to find another job, and it was one of the most stressful periods of my life. Just thinking about potentially going through that again is giving me panic attacks. Thanks, web for enterprise. Thanks for completely screwing me over.

You're lucky you got any severance at all. Most companies don't give a severance package. Also, you can also file for unemployment after 2 weeks and try to get food stamps. If it took you that long to find another job, maybe you're just being really picky. There are a lot of jobs out there right now. I hope you find something else.

While I feel for your situation, I am not sure what you are expecting?? This is standard for most companies that offer severance.
