I was in pretty much the same boat when my department got downsized. The trick is to leave out something that they won't address for quite some time after you're gone. I *forgot* to train them on certain end of the year processes. That job ended at the beginning of the year, and I got the first voicemail from my old employer last week, asking if I was available to help them out on something. Suck it, fools.

It's called keeping good relations for future references. Rather important if he'd want to get another job once he gets (inevitably) canned. Damned if you do, damned if you don't, but he oughtn't make it worse on himself

42, WHAT IS YOUR FUCKING PROBLEM? Also, the OP should take it to court. With any luck, the boss would look like an asshole, and be convicted of wrongful termination or something like that.

The OP probably didn't know this was going to happen when he took the job. Things change quickly in companies sometimes and all of a sudden they may want to move your job overseas.

Not always the case. Most often when outsourcing like that it's because they can pay someone much less for doing the same job. Sort of how most tech support jobs are in India. They have the same general skills, but because the cost of living is as low as it is they are paid much less.

My dad had a job with Boeing in Saudi Arabia doing the same exact thing. He had to train them how to fix AWACS planes. He busted his ass so much though, that they gave him a promotion. He now is a supervisor and gets renewed every 3 years with a new contract. Bust your ass and prove to your boss that you can work, and they will keep you.
