A month ago our company, in Canada, officially became acquired by another company. My previous company had at the time filed for bankruptcy protection.
The day we were told the official news that the deal was going through, 1/2 of our employees got laid off - maybe more. The rest of us are still here, busy as ever as we migrate over to the new system.
None of us have been given new job packages under the new company. Someone, outside of the company, told me this may be because they will do another lay-off, and not having a new job package means they are free from any legal severance package (since our old company was under bankruptcy protection).
Is the fact that we have not been given new job packages an indicator that we are likely to be laid off as well?
Is there any action that I can take to help improve my chances of being retained?
UPDATE: We are still being paid by the old company (ex-owners are getting reimbursed by new company).
