Yesterday was "layoff day" at my company.
In the building lobby, there were suit-and-tie security guards lining a roped-off walkway leading from one of the entry turnstiles to a dedicated elevator. About 400 people whose building passes no longer worked (after being deactivated on Thursday night) were whisked upstairs for "processing." Most of them were from the Technology Department; they were given 60 days notice with 60 days paid administrative leave effective immediately - i.e. they will still be paid for the next two months but they're not allowed to enter the building again during that time (for fear that they might hurt somebody or sabotage the computer networks).
Oy, what a way to go!
