Layoffs

Is there a bias against people who have been laid off?

If a hiring manager finds out that I've been laid off in the past, will it impact me negatively? Do I have to reveal this information at all?

    Laid off after 6 months in google will prevent you from ever getting a job again. Laid off after 5 years in yahoo is worth celebrating.

    No, it happens. Layoff or reorgs are not the same as being fired.

      Then again, nobody really knows if you’re fired or laid off 🤷‍♂️

    Not in the U.S.

    But, if you are going to get laid off, do it after 40, the severance packages are much better.

      Can you point me in the direction of what you're referring to?

      What makes you believe laid off employees who are 40 and older get better severance?

      No I knew about that one. It just says nothing about better severance packages other than mandated time to accept and clarified words. You should re-read.

    Layoffs are so frequent to the point that no one cares anymore.
