You should probably delay your plans to crap on his desk by about 3 weeks.

For me, It would depend on whether or not the company accepted a two week notice when someone is moving on. If not, SEE YA!!!!

Shouldn't even be a question- you go work for 3 weeks. But I'd make damn sure I cash that check at his bank the second I get it.

Cup his balls next time and maybe he will tell you he needs you for 6 weeks longer.

I agree. I'd be happy to know I had another three weeks of employment I wasn't expecting. This is of course assuming I hadn't already lined something else up.

You've got 3 weeks to fall down a flight of stairs and hurt your back. Might as well get paid to hunt this season.

They'd just give him workers comp until he's healthy, then can him. If he's on workers comp, he can't hunt. They would likely have him followed while he's playing hurt.

Ryan- you have to hurt yourself in a way that would be negligent on their part so that they settle the lawsuit before it's even started.

Slip in a water puddle in front of the cooler and break your femur. You'll never have to work again. :thumbsup:

If you are seriously pondering the question, yes you should stay on the payroll.

Think about it. If you are needed, you are valuable.
They can't wait to can a dirtbag.

Make a copy of your first RIF letter. And make SURE that you get a second RIF letter for the extended period.
That second RIF letter is your one-upper over the guy competing with you at your next job-you-really-want, interview.

Thanks for the advice copter. Still looking right now. I have had several offers, but I think I'm leaning towards the oil business this time around. One offer from KSI and I meet with them on the 21st.

I wouldn't turn down or delay starting a new job by any means.

But, if you are just looking at collecting unemployment, vs staying on the payroll for another three weeks, staying on the payroll is the wisest move.

Be careful with the oil business, it's not what it used to be. We used to have a saying "When times are good, they're damn good, and when they're bad, they're damn bad". However, most people I know in the industry right now don't know from day to day whether they will have a job tomorrow. What kind of position are you looking at in the oil business. If you don't want to say in the open, you can PM me if you want.

There are actually a few electrician positions available that I was shooting for. A couple of shifts supervisors too. I don't know JACK about the industry really.. My friends that all work down there suggested I give it a try. That's always bad to hear about the rocky employment. I'm kinda stuck between renewables and oil where I live. I have a degree in Forestry/Agriculture Sciences that I earned when I thought I was going to work a job I would love. With my prior employment with US Fish and Game in Colorado, proved the pay wouldn't keep my head above water for too long. I'm just glad I paid into a hefty 401k and saved a bit before the lay off hit me.
