Today they told employees that if they don’t have enough work then they have to use vacation time or take leave without pay. This is a joke. Prepare for another RIF.
While I agree this is a joke and no way to treat employees, I will still rather take force unpaid vacation than being laid off. For as long as there is an end in sight, that is. I'm thinking this is a way to prevent further layoffs, rather than be an indication of one.
