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.
