Dear Evil HR Lady,
Our company just hit us with the news that we are being outsourced as of the end of this month. With that we received an offer letter from our new potential employer, and boy, oh, boy is it not attractive. I was told that if I do not take the offer from the new company that it will be considered my resignation. Interesting, as I did not think I could be forced to resign. I am also told there is no separation package. This leads me to believe that I take this massive step backwards in my career and quality of life or I am tossed out on the street with nothing, not even unemployment. The offer letter keeps my current salary but increases my work day by two hours and decreases my OT from time-and-a-half to straight time.
What am I to do? I do not want to go backwards.
