The Layoff List was created in 2019 and is free for the community. Tips reported are left anonymous unless they explicitly ask to be included as a source. We verify a majority of tips and include independent sources, but for tips that we are unable to verify we separately categorize them as unverified reports to avoid misrepresentations.
