H1B layoff - will I be elligible for severance package if I live in California (working remotely)?

Thank you Anil, can you please confirm whether I would be elligible for severance package if I live in California(working remotely). My employer(head office) is in New Jersey. Also, do you suggest staying here (without a job and paying heavy rent, approximately 6000 for 2 months) vs going back to India and coming later. Appreciate your personal perspective.

Hi @jelitta

Staying in US and personal expenses vary by each person and their preference. I can’t say if it would be good for you or not.

Severance package also depends on your company policy. Please check with your HR and read your Employment contact.

Thank you so much, Anil!
