leaving chevron with severance

chevron redeployment program

During redeployment you'll transition your work responsibilities. You may also be able to search, prepare, and apply for your next career opportunity. Here's how redeployment works and what to expect.

program highlights

You will participate in Chevron’s Redeployment Program for up to six weeks prior to your termination of employment date, as long as you continue to meet eligibility requirements.

You and your supervisor will discuss your redeployment details which include:

  • Expectations for how your work responsibilities should be transitioned.
  • The last day you'll have access to the Chevron intranet network.
  • The percentage of time you'll be able to engage in job search activities.
  • If you'll report to the workplace during any or all of this time.
You'll continue to receive your regular pay and participate in your current active, U.S.-payroll benefit plans and programs during the redeployment period. You're strongly encouraged to use this time, to learn about what happens to your employee benefit plans and programs when your employment terminates, particularly if you are eligible for Chevron retiree health and welfare benefits when you leave. Learn more here.

During redeployment, you'll have the opportunity to search, prepare, and apply for job opportunities both inside and outside the company. 

  • If you participated in an Expression of Interest (EOI) process and your EOI is approved, you will not be considered for internal Chevron job opportunities. 
  • If you decline a Chevron job offer that is not a demotion, you are viewed as having voluntarily resigned from Chevron and would forfeit any and all severance benefits associated with an involuntary layoff. The same rule applies to Chevron job offers that require relocation.

You may accept or decline any job offer received during redeployment, but you should consult your severance pay plan summary plan description to determine if your severance benefits will be affected.

If you're eligible to participate in a severance pay plan, your personalized notification letter will include your last day on Chevron payroll, referred to as your termination of employment date. 

  • Your termination of employment date is also the end of your redeployment period. 
  • At the end of your redeployment period, your regular pay and active employee benefits will end. 

Upon completion of your redeployment period and when your Chevron employment has terminated you'll be able to:
