got laid off because they knew I will move out

My name is Pamela. I just got laid off about a week ago. Here is the story….

My husband and I worked at the same firm in Mid West area. We worked in the different departments and stayed there for 5 years until my husband decided that there was no room to grow in this company. So, he applied a new job and got a job offer in another state, with a double salary and a better position.

After my husband quited the job, my ex-supervisor came to talk to me and asked me what was my plan and how long I would stay with the firm. I told him that I would have to quit the job in the fall because I have to stay to sell the house.

After 2 weeks my husband left the firm, I got laid off. On my last day, the ex-supervisor said about the reason why I got laid off. It is because the firm knew I am leaving them to join my husband. The firm did not consider or look at my working performance. Eventhough my evaluation is so excellent, with a high percentage of efficiency, sorry…it couldn’t safe me.

    Nevere, ever tell your employer you plan to leave until you are ready to leave…2 weeks max. Lesson learned.

    Oops, didn’t pay to be honest there. Never ever let on about the real plans in this type of situation.

    Hopefully your hubby negotiated the house sale into his new job package.
