    So horrible. Feel so bad now. Completely stressed out. And we have no idea what a reason why laid off. Did they file BK already or what?

    Because there’s no money to pay us and the treximet debt. It’s pretty clear.

    The WAY this was handled is shameful. Thanks for the letter telling us not to talk about how you put everyone in the street with no money or car. We don’t work for you anymore. Our shares are worth nothing.

    Sounds like a contract sales layoff. But we would get are 30 days Warn (thats your severance) and bonus. So enjoy your unemployment. Start sending out resumes NOW don't wait. Cobra's should be offered (so expensive if you have a family) Keep in touch with your Manager he or she most likely will end up in a contract sales role. If he likes you you could join him on that contract. You had a great job but you may not land a job in Pharma again. So be flexible.

    You DO qualify for WARN. See judicial rulings. Geographically dispersed sales forces are not a loophole for WARN compliance. All other exemptions do NOT apply to this situation.

    They got rid of JH, BP, FH, KM, KB, and RB. They kept others for short term extended work to clean up things then they are getting my go. LC and MS I believe are still there on extended work. All of finance are there of course . IT down to 2 worthless people (JT and MH). Others will get jobs at NAL.

    Who is filing for WARN? We are due bonus and severance!

    Bonus would be hard to get, but severance, benefits, lawyer fees and interest can be included in the WARN act class action suite.

    Great observations and advice! I was laid off from my company in the fall of '17 when my entire sales force was suddenly eliminated. They paid us to the end of the year and paid out our Q4 bonuses, which was fair, and we were grateful for this. However, the job search was a nightmare! Pharma is shrinking - an industry in decline. The competition for jobs is fierce! It took me a year to get back into the industry. After 6 months of being unemployed, I was forced to return to my old field, a field I last worked in 15 years ago before I entered Pharma. The job in my former career field paid half what I made in Pharma, but I had consistent work, overtime hours, and was able to pay my bills. As mentioned, I finally secured another Pharma gig after a year of being out of the industry. I had an employee referral and I knew the manager. I keep the job in my old field as a part-time side gig (some evening and weekend work) as a hedge against unemployment due to possible future pharma layoff. Good luck to everyone! I have been laid off 3 times in my 15-year Pharma career. Unemployment sucks, and the job search sucks even more these days. My advice is to secure something outside Pharma, even if it's in a low-paid field, that can provide consistent work or at least some income. And/or have passive income through investments, etc. Point is to be diversified and have more than one income stream so as not to have all your eggs in one basket. Pharma has become too volatile and there is no security in the industry.

    What about the shares everyone got? Don't they convert in a Buyout?

    I’m so sorry that was your experience. Luckily several here have been able to secure Pharma jobs.

    Unfortunately the rest of the company was dropped with no warning and no severance. No earned Q4 bonus. It was a bloodbath. Several employees have been here for many years. I hope the crappy reputation follows JS GJ and JV for eternity.

    Shares??? they are worth less than nothing after the split a few years ago. Thanks again for the total bullshit way you left everyone with nothing. Why did you keep people working. Clearly this was in the works long before September. You needed the sales force to look productive? Squeeze as much sales as possible and then cut us without even a week severance? Stop the car insurance that morning without warning? You are real pieces of work.

    Dear GJ: SC talked more shit about you than almost anyone in the company - and that’s saying something.

    A big thanks to Mike Pierce, Doug Drysdale and Rick Shalaby for getting this pile of shit rolling down the hill. It has found it’s resting point. Sorry to hear about the inevitable finally happening. Pernix was such a great place to work before those jerk offs drove it into the ground. John Seder, Jim Johnson and George Jones kept downward alive. Congrats guys. You have successful put the final bullet into a once thriving company. Time to song Kumbaya.

    No mention in your press release about you using the sales force to show gains and activity and then dumping them all with no notice, severance and revoking their earned bonus. You are all giant pieces of s%#!

    JS and GJ are not to be lauded for anything. Get real.
