Slashdot | HP to Layoff 15,000 Employees

HP is expected to announce the layoffs as early as Monday, but employees are not expected to be immediately notified of their status, the source said, noting such a practice is common in corporate America.

See, that is the kind of BS that makes people NOT want to work for you.

A have been laid off (a larger american corporation which I will not mention due to some current issues going on) with 36-hour notice through a 3rd party with no compensation or anything.

However, when I worked for jBASE, they gave us 6 months notice and 3 months severance. I would have no qualms about working for them again.

The 'american custom' of screwing over your employees sucks and should be changed.
