I was just layed off from a CA office in a national company during a restructuring/consolidation reduction in force. I was the only person holding my title and had direct reports in several different states. In my exit letter, it was stated that my position (referred to as both 'job' and 'position') was being eliminated. Immediately upon my dismissal, the company promoted a non-management employee in another office to my 'eliminated' position. I am under the impression that this goes against CA labor code, but cannot find a direct reference. Anyone have any pertinent advice?
