I got laid off in 6/2017 and I would like to know what the process is on how selection is made for choosing staff to get laid off within the department. Looking for answers from persons who may know about the process directly. Is it the direct manager that has some input on who to layoff or is it strictly done at the HR and senior manager levels?
I'm trying to get a sense if my immediate manager was asked to pick a name from the team and foward on for layoff.
Yes I know favortism and all of that MAY come into play........but I have to believe it is more controlled than that.
Any knowledable answers or insight would be helpful.
