How to survive a layoff

Kudos to The Motley Fool for yet another useful article. This one talks about what to do when laid off. It never would have occurred to me to negotiate a severance when hired. Here’s a quick list for those of you with jobs (i.e. no free time).

  1. Get everything you’ve been promised in writing.
  2. If you have some notice before the day the ax finally falls, do a little research.
  3. Volunteer to stay for another 30 or 60 days.
  4. Consult the employee manual.
