So inspite my giving it the best my dick of a manager decided that I’m not meeting his bar for performance in my PIP. The deadline of the PIP is Monday. Does anyone know what comes next? Do I get a day or week to transition out and leave or am I packing up my stuff on Monday and be gone?
Also does anyone know about health benefits? I have a baby on the way (in feb) and I’m going to ask that they keep my benefits alive till feb end.
If your manger decides that you are not meeting the bar for performance then expect to be fired on or before the end of the PIP. (You’ll likely be escorted out so make sure you take everything that belongs to you over the weekend from your desk)
Usually they will give you benefits for about a month from the day of your firing and ask you to sign a Non Disparagement Agreement (NDA) stating that in return for getting a severance and not asking for any monies back (relocation, bonus) that you don’t sue them or disparage them. (It’s a dick move to ask you to sign in return for the severance and not asking you to repay any monies due)
How long were you at the company and which group is this? Which location? (PM me the details and depending on your location I’ll give you contact info for a few lawyers)
I recommend that you copy your entire mailbox, documents etc.. and keep notes of who did what and when. Don’t sign the NDA right away as you should call a few employment lawyers to see if they will take up your case.
Very important is to find the company handbook outlining its policies and storing that in a safe place. Employment lawyers will ask for this.
The company will give you two weeks to send in the signed NDA. That’s how much time you have to either sue them or sign the NDA and be done. If you decide to sue make sure that you sue in the jurisdiction mentioned in the NDA.
Start your job search if you haven’t already done so and don’t use your manager or others who hold a dim view of you as references.
