Today, I finished and turned in the last of the seventeen major projects for the company I work for. As I was walking out of my bosses office, I hear her ask her assistant "She finished everything we didn't want to do, can we fire her now?" FML

@justalilrandom: I'm not sure how he's going to moderate and ban you, given he isn't a moderator... So calm yourself down, everyone, and yes, the reply button is for replying to a comment, not for getting yours to the top of the page.

That wasn't so clear, but alright then. On a general note to whoever made the trolling accusation, please next time don't make such accusations; that's our job, but you can always private message me or another moderator about such things if you wish.

Make it a learning experience. Next time, try to get a contract for friable offenses or something, and a list of crap like this you're safe from. And you might not get fired, you never know. :P

Great. "Today, my former company won a judgement against me for damages when my sabotaged powerpoint presentation cost them a contract. Now, not only am I unemployed, I owe them more than I made the entire time I actually worked for them. FML"

Wow, your boss is an awful woman. I'd resign and start looking for a job now if I were you, so you don't have to answer a bunch of questions about why you were fired when you interview for your next job.

idk if it's the same in all states, but a potential employer can only obtain information regarding dates worked, basically verify previous employment. if the potential employer does ask if they were fired or why, and the previous employer gives that info... it's illegal. besides, how dumb would they sound? "oh, they were terminated because she did all the work we were supposed to, and didnt want to do. plus, we just didn't like her." so fuck them over and quit op.

You are correct that employers can only divulge certain info, but some of the info is if the person is re-hirable or not. As a manager we have code to use with each other. We'll say something to the affect, "Yes these dates are correct. Do you have anyone else in mind?" That pretty much says to the new potential employer, hire the other candidate.
