Laid off Notice. What can you do?

Al Sklover offers some sage advice for a person
who received a WARN notice.  It is worth learning
what this should indicate you should do next if it
happens to you.

    Al Sklover added informative commentary about
    a situation
    where a person asked to resign on a
    future date and was
    terminated days earlier.

    He noted
    “- due to your “layoff,” unemployment insurance
    benefits
    may apply.
    - if the employer has a severance plan or policy,
    this gives
    you the “option” to request payment of
    severance.

    - if the reason(s) for the layoff – that is, to raise
    an issue
    that it was discriminatory, or retaliatory,
    or perhaps in
    violation of assurances that you
    could remain with the
    company, you have an
    “option” to contest the termination
    until the date
    you specify.

    - you also have an “option” of requesting of your
    boss,
    the CEO, or the Board of Directors, directly,
    that they
    honor your original resignation date, as it
    seems to have
    been made with a sense of fair
    play and honest regard
    for the employer’s interests.
    This last “option” is one most often forgotten,
    but more
    effective than most believe.”
