    Employer Notification for COBRA
    I have worked with the same company 21 years. I have never received a general notice about my cobra rights until this year. It appears that a mass mailing was done to all employees (over 500). Coincidentally this mailing was followed by major staff reductions. I have not been laid off, but I want to know, is this common practice? Could a mass general notification be indicative of something else, i.e.: selling the company etc.

    It is common with any company that is changing their company policy or business practice to notify employees of their rights and benefits. Take it as a warning to prepare yourself no matter what the change is.
