SunTrust Banks in Atlanta is laying off about 100 IT workers as it moves work offshore. But this layoff is unusual for what it is asking of the soon-to-be displaced workers: The bank's severance agreement requires terminated employees to remain available for two years to provide help if needed, including in-person assistance, and to do so without compensation.

If you don't want the severance package then don't take the deal.

The people that are being laid off are accepting an offer.

That's even worse than having to train your replacement.
According to the article they are doing that as well.

No. Employees are getting laid off, whether they get any type of Severance depends on whether or not they agree to the terms - i.e. be on call for two years without compensation.

I've seen this before, being in IT. I would only agree to the severance package if it included an adequate amount of money. At which point in time I would stress the "reasonable" part in my availability.

Cut-throat POS's - I stopped doing business with Suntrust years ago.
Take the packages and be available if you feel like it. Or find one of the hundreds of wage and civil attorneys foaming at the mouth to jump into action :)

That is what I said. If you don't like the severance offer don't accept it. You don't HAVE to take what they offer.

Likely however, these people will take the offer because that is the best they feel they can get in this market. I would suspect they are going to provide pretty sub par work for the compensation...
