I'm a new hire, around 3 months into this new software company, sadly right after the COVID strikes, I have been a full remote worker since going to the office is not an option.
So I have very minimal connection to people in the company to ask or discuss about this.
From the daily meetings and status updates, it seems that probably there's little to almost no project since the client is cutting costs and reducing requests to our company.
It is still not a fixed situation, but since I'm the newest hire probably I'm gonna be cut first than all the other seniors, since I think that would be the wise action (minimal people with max experience and knowledge of the system).
My question is, is it okay to ask my manager about the situation and the future of the job, so if I'm going to be terminated, I can have a head start looking for new job.
Also, I'm an outsource employee, I have asked about my contract with the headhunter agent I'm in but their response was not good, like if the company decided to let me go, the headhunter will just terminate the contract right away.
