job elimination notice

My husband received a Power Point presention with a new company structure(without names). He was told to apply for a new position without pay information. He has a 1 year no-compete for 1 year's salary. Is his company required to notify him by name that his position has been elimated? It seems they are trying to avoid the semantics of letting him go to avoid the severance package. If he applies for a "new" position does he give up his current contract? Can they terminate him for not applying for a "new" position?

Job Elimination Notice

Your husband has a very complex problem. To answer this question properly I need to review his contract, the notice he was given, any other written communciation the company has sent to him and discuss the situation with him. He needs to proceed very carefully.

We help folks like your husband all the time. He has a number of options and may be in a better position than he thinks.

We can scheudle an initial consultation in person or over the phone whichever is more convenient to you. I usually prefer to conduct those initial consultations in person if possible but time and expense might dictate a telephone consultation. If he is interested, please have him call my office, 901.683.1850 to schedule a consultation.
