I have been working for a company 8 months now. I was temporary laid off in april due to covid then recently terminated. They only are giving me one week severance. I have looked into it and I really should be getting about a month or so. Just wanting yan opinion before I go further.
I have been working with the company for more than 8 years now, never been laid off before, but this month I was temporary laid off (mid June 2020). The layoff letter specified the return date (which is 12 weeks from layoff date). During the layoff I still have health coverage by the employer. Employer requested that I accept the layoff letter and sign it... I did. The letter basically did not give me options to choose, the employer was just informing me that I was laid off. My original job offer did not have any clause about temporary layoffs, I am 47 years old, with the company for 8 years and couple of months, position is Sr. Engineer. I have 2 questions; 1- I signed the letter and accepted the temporary layoff, is it too late to go after my severance? Do I have to wait the 12 weeks and see if they call me back or not? 2-Because I already accepted the temp layoff, does that give my employer the power to impose future temporary layoffs on my without seeking my acceptance?
Hi i work for a trucking company as a mechanic do i have to work stat holidays? Can i choice how i get?
Hello. I worked at a retail chain as part-time sales associate for 3.5 years (September 2016 - June 30th 2020). Laid off due to covid store closing. After several months they decided not to renew lease and store location will close. While packing up store I met the manager from another location looking for new employees. Had to apply online as new candidate and fill our paperwork as new employee. Several days later received termination letter and severance offer from company about store closing. I also received part-time employment offer from the other store location. According to the new manager I am listed in the system as a rehire and not a transfer. If I accept new offer can the company rescind my severance offer and identify me as 'transferred' instead of 'terminated' ? If yes, is there a wait time before I can accept new offer without having to return severance? Thanks in advance.
