    Nope. They need to name the company

    I see possible lawsuits in the making.

    That's just wrong if true.

    Companies can and are doing pay reductions - large DFW marketing company reduced my daughter's pay 10% (they are doing 5%-20% based on salary). But openly stating it's tied to the stimulus check will be lawsuit time! I would imagine the company name will be known very soon and the backlash will be so great they'll regret ever thinking about it. I despise social media but this will be one of the very rare cases when it comes in handy. Unfortunately, the hit to their sales may actually create unrelated salary reductions and/or layoffs.

    Sounds like a good way to have someone visit you and take up a little batting practice on your joints.

    That particular type of reeducation is greatly under-utilized in my opinion.

    Right? It's based off of combined family income.

    " Didn't I tell you my wife is a rocket scientist for SpaceX?"

    If B. Hussein Obama dosnt have to release his birth certificate.
    And Donald J Trump dosent have to release his tax returns.
    I don't have to prove crap either.

    Co. has to make payroll, know who pays withholding. Stupid to send out a 'notice' form. Somebody in HR wants to know who to layoff?

    Were I an employee, I would not sign the agreement. I would also not hesitate in dragging their name through the mud. What’s the worst they’re going to do, fire me? Go ahead, my ambulance chasing labor attorney will just add retaliation to the list of shit justifying punitive damages.

    I don’t work for free.
