Re: Have you ever been sacked .?

Yup, been sacked (made redundant) a couple of times. Retribution really when part of those well paid jobs entailed me going to remote places and introducing "shareholder value" after company mergers. The pay-off packages were typically the maximum amount for which I could have sued the employer, they paid for me to have a lawyer to check the details of the package. Overall it saved them money.
The global boss used to encourage pro-active working by saying: "come in to work each day prepared to be fired for what you've done."

Re: Have you ever been sacked .?

sacked 3 times.
first time in my first ever job I got reinstated within a week.
second time I was sacked from a call center for a unclear vague reason 2 hours into my shift with been escorted of premises (Was definitely not gross misconduct), reported employer, they were told was wrongful dismissal and had to pay me an extra week wages.
Third time was due to ill health (not my work performance) right before I spent some time on incapacity benefit.

Usually I've jumped before I was pushed!
There was one time I was sacked and speculated and retained a lawyer. I finished up with an "amicable" agreement which amounted to about a years net salary after the lawyer was paid his not inconsiderable fees. There was a non disclosure agreement as well so can't say more Roll eyes

Re: Have you ever been sacked .?

Can't say i've ever been sacked but i've had life made so miserable that they've forced me towards the door and waited for me to walk out of it if you know what i mean. Not nice having bad health..
The last place that happened my boss was an evil ****, Nastiest bit of work I could ever work for. As luck would have it just a few months after I walked, the company told him to go or they'd sack him. He went  Grin Didn't do me any favours obviously as I'd been forced out the door by him and lost eh best paid job I'd ever had but it was great to know that what went around came around and he got clobbered. He only wanted me out because he had a friend he wanted working there.. he might have got his friend into my job but in the process he got himself out of his.

Re: Have you ever been sacked .?

First job I had for about 5 or 6 months, working as a customer support tech for a small software company, never got trained to do the job (only how to work the software), spoke to many idiots on the phones (the PN staff have my sympathies there!!), suffered with idiots in the same room as me, started losing my mind and arriving to work late, and got the boot cos of it, initially felt miserable about losing the job, but, when my mind returned from wandering off, it was more a liberation than anything...
