It's incredible that they can just call an employee up on the phone and tell them they are laid off "effective immediately". They can really do that without any notice?

Too bad, because care is already substandard there, and with fewer staff it'll only get worse.

At large companies it sometimes goes like this - -

A subset of employees - could be dozens or a hundred - is called to a meeting. HR stands up and says, "You're all done today - Security will escort you off the premises, and we'll send any personal things at your desk to your address of record."

Yup, that happens...

I have heard from multiple reliable sources that they are going from department to department and escorting the workers out of the building. All LPN's have been let go along with employees who have been there for 20+ years. They are building a brand new state of the art ER for a hospital that may not be there in another year. Way to go!

That is how you people like, right to work or fire anyone, anytime, no reason given.

The main reason for this type of action is computers. One disgruntled employee with the right computer knowledge in just a short time could cost a company millions. Some will pay a 2week salary but it is not required. In the same token many employees these days quit in an instant without notice.
