    • I would ask.  But I’m like that.  I think it shows you care about that person.  I would also give them an ‘out‘..ie - “I heard something through the grapevine and will understand if you don’t want to talk about it...”

    • I would approach them but not in a pathetic pitying way. I would just say that I heard and wanted to confirm. Once confirmed I would respond appropriately depending on level of relationship. I may also offer congratulations on their future journey.

    • Bit tricky – did they get laid off due to the economic climate or were they pushed for other reasons?

    • I would not approach him/her. I would wait a few days to make sure that it’s not a rumor or if it is the truth. I believe that if they are a FREIND they will contact you by telephone or email you later. Give it some time.

    • Tough one Annie, I think I would just go forward as normal until the co-worker mentions it or sends the email.
      They may not want to discuss it or they may not know yet?

    • I would not.  My boss and all the upper management faced the same issue.  One said he got the call.  My boss thought that must be a good call for he had no word.  Later he found out it was better not hear a thing - it meant he was safe.

    • when I was laid off-the two guys and the owners cried.  I cheerfully boxed up my stuff and went home.  I thought I’d miss the guys, my office, etc... but I never did!

      And as for everyone at the main store-not one of them sent me an e-mail.  However, about 6 of the salesmen’s clients asked the guys for my home e-mail and wrote me lovely letters wishing me the best and telling me they would miss me and probably move on, that I was the main reason they had stayed as long as they did!  That felt wonderful, let me tell you!

      Plus, several of our vendor reps told me they would keep a look out for possible job openings for me!
