And the usual performance and bonuses are not included, and these are usually paid by default every month. If the basic salary is used as the monthly salary standard for compensation, employees who have been laid off like Yu Gang will receive a lot less money.
On the afternoon of July 30, the company interviewed the employees again, saying that if they did not accept the compensation plan,
Yu Gang and his colleagues did not compromise because of the company's attitude. They came to work as usual on Monday, August 2, and formally applied for labor arbitration on August 3. However, because the company did not really unilaterally compel the termination of the contract, formal arbitration could not be conducted. The mediator, HR who can represent the company, and employee representatives should conduct mediation.
The two sides struggled. On August 4, the HR representative who came to Shanghai on behalf of the headquarters to sign an economical contract with the employees completely denied that the company would unilaterally terminate the contract and made threatening remarks. On the same day, the WeChat public account of Pea Dou Siwei also issued an official job title email list statement in response to the large-scale layoffs of the network. The statement pointed out that due to the "double reduction" policy, the company's business line was forced to adjust and some positions were shrunk. It also recognized that there were problems in
communication with employees, and would seriously correct it and continue to communicate with employees in a friendly manner. And said that in the future, innovative interactive quality education products will be provided, and courses such as art, programming, eloquence and expression art will be launched soon.
Yu Gang and his colleagues disagreed with Wandou Siwei's statement, because the entire statement did not mention "layoffs", and said that the company used the compensation money saved on employees to support the operation of new businesses. In addition, they believe that on July 22, 2021, the company also posted a huge advertisement on the outer wall of the Landmark Plaza, Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street, Shanghai, indicating that the company did not have money to compensate its employees.
