Sooo, hints are being dropped about August,...can anyone elaborate on what is happening? Another big round of layoffs? Ohio medicaid case management has productivity sheets going to plan president each week that “we will be held accountable for”. Does that play into it? I’m assuming case managers are getting laid off as well as other departments? If anyone who knows anything would elaborate...

So then what is in August or whenever bc at least pinksnitch would say it even though I know who she is personally. how is it that I know of the 2020 plans but not 2019? New Mexico took months and months and months to get out of and I have yet to see anything cross my desk on exits or reductions in staff and its July.
ES got nice severance packages.
I’m just glad we have a new and improved IT department. They are grrrrreeeeeat!
Settle down last poster. In general, they may pull you in and say in 60 days from today, you have no job. Sure, everyone needs sometime or severance to get by and sort things out- but do you really feel any better????
And, if you live in the armpit that is Ohio, it’s like double punishment.
Good luck to all, your going to need it soon!
It cant be posted that day..what part of that do u not get? It is the law. If so, then express scripts f---ed up and do sone research on the companies that got sued. Look up the recent trucking company in Ohio that just did that. Employees are going to own them. Talking about 20 to 30 million dollar payout bc of it in settlements. There is a reason it is called a 60 day notice. A notice alerts you...the alert is that within 60 days u wont have a job...notice 1st...message 2nd...That is like a landlord giving you a 30 day notice to move out and then only giving u a day to get out - the notice is a legally defining notice. Look up caselaw like I do (law student) and research the companies who have lost their asses doing that.
Ummmm Express Scripts Ohio employees got no warning...rumors yes. Called in office and let go that day. Warn act posted that day/no 60 days thank you very much.
Not to mention some leadership leaving is a good thing bc they probably got the A/B option (resign or get fired) or know that the gig is up in the sense of them freeloading and not caring and now Suite C etes are on them and trust me when I tell u that theyare.. Have u ever looked in on some of these past leaders? Meaning what they are doing now? Most of them are at small time companies (with the exception of a few). There is a reason they aren't VP's at UHC or Anthem.
You do realize that WARN Act is a federal act right? State does not trump Federal in any sense. Per Ohio's site " In Ohio, employees are covered by the federal WARN Act, which requires advance notice of layoffs". Telling u ur laid lff the day of would make WARN notice pointless wouldnt it? If something is up with members dropping off then who would want to buy us like everyone says? Bc it would be the numbers of members the buying company would want. We are losing ppl bc job market is up. Contacts at Caresource said same is happening with them.
Warn act is different in every state. That is CA. Ohio does not have to give Warn notice until that day. What if the announcement is August and then they say until end of year. face it... no one knows or somewhat of a clue would have been dropped
But the way VP s dropping like flies and membership decrease ... my crystal ball reads something up!!!!
Theres nothing big happening in August. You realize they are already past the 60 day notices for August -like ALL of August right? The WARN Act is a law not a suggestion and would cost Molina millions and millions of dollars in fines anx lawsuits right. Not to mention that u have a bonus if u are a shareholder for Molina. They tell everyone that all is well and we are good and then lat us off - well, as a shareholder does all seem well and good if a mass layoff is going to happen? This is called misleading shareholders. The law states specifically this:
"No solicitation … shall be made by means of any proxy statement, form of proxy, notice of meeting or other communication, written or oral, containing any statement which, at the time and in the light of the circumstances under which it is made, is false or misleading with respect to any material fact, or which omits to state any material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein not false or misleading …" - 17 CFR sect. 240.14a-9- False or Misleading Statements.
In regards to WARN ACT-
Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) (29 USC 2100 et. seq.) - Protects workers, their families and communities by requiring most employers with 100 or more employees to provide notification 60 calendar days in advance of plant closings and mass layoffs.
If the references to August are about layoffs and have any truth, it seems that there should be some WARN notices out soon, right?
She said teo years ago she was xoncerned about her husband with the weather and said if she had an opp to take a job in warmer climate she would.
VP can say whatever about why she left. Yeah Ohio weather sux but we have climate control. Lol Nobody at her level is a straight shooter. Did you really expect her to get up there and say "Hi I'm getting the hell outta here!".
Odd...every single project we have that has to do with expanding came to us all the way from LB - I dont even see anything to prep for something in August. New Mexico was months and months and months of prep work to exit. But now August is just gonna be easy peezzyy? No prep work just drop what we are doing? Doubt that.
You won’t have to worry about sipping kool aid once August comes around
Well I can tell you this "next" bit of info as well. Anyone who attended Ohio meeting with VP thatnis leaving knows that she was not happy with some of the stuff on her desk and Ohios nimbers not meeting targets. So probably that and f--- sakes enough of the Kool Aid sh--. Like it or not no matter what job anyone is at they have to drink the Kool aid if u want paid.
Pink Snitch did not know about the RFP... she talked about more layoffs and outsourcing.
To the poster below-RFP not yet submitted. Have until 2020 now. You are obviously guessing and not in the know. Next!!
Lots of Kool-Aid being passed around in this thread!! Run, don’t walk folks!
As for CM productivity sheets - I would bet a million to one its for one of two reasons.
1) we just submitted RFP for MCD to Ohio and it backs up any sentiments of the importance of case managers and an all encompassed approach to care.
2)) With all the new programs being and about to be piloted they need to see who is available to help case manage these programs - this way they can justify pulling u from ur team to possibly a pulot program team. Sounds like they may just be assessing case loads.
The VP of HCS left because of her husband having a condition ,which I will not name outta respect, and the weather here in Ohio s---s as is so she and her husband are moving to Arizona bc warmer weather helps decrease amount of medical problems daily Look at all the people Ohio had leave when Project Nickel first started. Ohio had head of HR, VP's resign, managers - u name it. Every single person was buzzing the same story along "big things about to happen" "start looking for another job" "all these ppl wouldnt leave if they didnt know something right?" Here we are two years later....still employed.
The VP leaving is a straight shooter - I mean u have to at least know that about her. She runs a tight ship and is a no nonsense type leader. I will debunk the "leaving for bad reasons" myth right now - she told me about her wanting to do this eventually w/her hubby (warmer climate) due to his medical condition/needs...two years ago.
Two managers and the VP of Healthcare Services have resigned this month in Ohio....that doesn’t look good. Something is coming. You don’t get that much leadership leaving during such a supposedly critical time for nothing...
