Purpose of this online forum: Mutual help on severance, cashflow, Unemployment and Trade Adjustment Assistance, job searching...
Much of what members have discussed in the forum has been organized and added to the advice in our ASAP Checklist -- what to do before losing access to the company's internal systems and in the following few weeks.
If you were formerly a regular, direct employee of Hewlett-Packard, HP Inc, or Hewlett Packard Enterprise -- or are in the process of leaving -- join the HPAA at no charge.
If you are already a member of this
The HPAA has several online forums. If you are an HPAA member but not a member of this particular forum:
1. Send a note from the email account you use for your HPAA membership to email@example.com (The subject and content do not matter -- no one sees your note.)
2. Yahoo's system will send a reply asking you to confirm your request. (If you don't see the reply in a couple of minutes, check your spam or junk folder. In Gmail, click "More" or "All Mail" to find the Spam folder.)
3. Reply to the confirmation email. Unless you have a Yahoo ID, don't use the link in the email -- just send a reply. (Again, the subject and content do not matter.)
4. HPAA volunteers will check the member roster and approve your request -- normally within 48 hours. Yahoo will then send you an email.
After joining, you can submit a post by
