(((hug))) I hope everything goes okay.

Arm yourself with a list of questions so you feel more confident.  Make sure you ask about a severance package, COBRA, relocation options, telecommuting options or part-time work in your area, and any little thing you can think of.

This may be a blessing in disguise if your company isn’t doing well.  Be strong, bee!

That really sucks.

crossing my fingers for you that they just want to discuss the recent (and possibly future) layoffs and how it will affect the company etc. ๐Ÿ™

 Maybe they just want to fill you in on what happened yesterday when you weren’t there.  Good luck!  Keep us updated!

You and Darling Husband have talked about this right?  If not, call him, now!  

I’m in education so our layoffs come in a different manner but would a 2 hour meeting be necessary for a layoff?  Maybe it is just a meeting.

It might not be as bad as you think. Usually when you are laid off they call you to “come down” and they dont schedule a meeting so you can see it coming. It gives you too much time, from a security standpoint, to steal information etc.

Regardless of what happens, you should read a book called Who Moved the Cheese?  It’s a really great story about being ready for change, either pro-actively or because it’s put upon you.
