Google layoffs: Employee fired who returned from leave, HR sacked while interviewing a candidate for job

0
Google recently announced that it will be cutting 12,000 jobs and if the reports are to be believed, the company is probably seeing the most dramatic layoffs one may have heard off. The company has sacked employees working for as long as 20 years and earlier this week, reports claimed that 27 message therapists were among those who were told to go. In the latest development, two former employees have shared how their firing was a shocker to them.
Employee fired after coming back from leave
In a post on LinkedIn, Tommy York, former employee at Google, stated that his layoff felt like “a slap in the face, like being hit when you’re down.” He said that he was laid off from Google last week – four days after he returned from “bereavement leave for my Mom, who died from cancer in December.”
“I’m tired and disappointed,” York wrote. He also noted that there will be more opportunities to work at exciting companies, and he was grateful that he spent time with his Mom, “and not overworking for a company who might decide on one cold Friday morning that my badge doesn’t work anymore.”
‘Call got disconnected suddenly..’
Another employee revealed how he was fired abruptly when he could not access his account anymore. A similar thing happened with a Google recruiter, who was in the middle of a call with a potential candidate when the call was disconnected all of a sudden. Google has been so discreet about its layoffs that even the people in the recruiting department had no about the company’s shocking move.
Dan Lanigan-Ryan worked as a recruiter at Google and said his call was disconnected while he was in the middle of a chat with a potential candidate. As per Business Insider, he said that he tried to log in during the call Friday but couldn’t do so. Soon after they were informed via email that they are among the 12,000 people to be fired from the company.
“I was blocked out of everything. And then I saw on the news about 15, 20 minutes later that Google was announcing 12,000 layoffs,” he was quoted as saying.
