Latest Questions & Answers
Q: I received a Voluntary Self Select Option Program packet. To apply, do I just turn in the 2-page application form to WDRS or do I also include the approval form and give it to my division head?
A: Please fill out the 2-page VSSOP application form and return to WDRS via e-mail at email@example.com or hard copy to M.S. 107. WDRS will contact your division head. You can ignore the approval form.
Q: If I have a question about where my position falls in the workforce group categories on the Fermilab Post-Reduction Headcount goals (only accessible from Fermilab computers), whom should I contact?
A: Please e-mail the WDRS staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: I am an H-1 visa holder and received a VSSOP packet. Do I need to make arrangements with the Fermilab Visa Office?
A: Any foreign national at Fermilab in a nonimmigrant status (H-1B, J-1, F-1) should contact the Visa Office before making a decision about the VSSOP program.
Q: Will the layoff date of an employee depend on when the employee responds to the VSSOP invitation? In particular if I wait until the end of the two week option period to respond, will my period of employment at the lab be two weeks longer than if I respond right away?
A: The date that the employee turns in an application will not necessarily correspond with the separation date of June 30, July 1, July 2, or July 3.
Q: Will the dates of the layoff of voluntary and involuntary layoffs be the same?
A: The dates of the voluntary and involuntary will not be the same. The involuntary layoff will follow the voluntary layoff unless we get a sufficient amount of people from the voluntary layoff.
