Bad timing

Today, the company where I used to work at announced that there would be a staff reduction because of the low income caused by the pandemic. I just quit yesterday in favor of another job. All of my former workmates are getting paid their respective settlements because of this termination, while I'm not. FML

Same thing happened to me, OP, except I didn't quit, they just said I didn't qualify because I was never formally working after my maternity leave... I would have been if they didn't fire me.

Also- I took online classes so I wouldn't lose funding because of my pregnancy, but because they were online they didn't count for my degree. The whole school went online right before my baby was born. I could have already graduated but I didn't because of the online courses. I feel for your FML.

Something similar happened to me at an insurance company I worked for. I found a much better job and gave one week's notice. A week after I left, everybody got a bonus.

This happened to a colleague at a place we both worked she found a new job before redundancies were in the works and had to work out her resignation while the rest of us took redundancy. She had the better deal as she had a job and security at the end of the day
