By sick of life - United States
Today, I called in sick to work for a second day. After months of my boss trying to get me sacked by spreading vicious rumors about me, taunting me into retaliating, and generally making my life a living hell, he finally got his chance. He sent me a text saying, "yeh dont bother son ure fuckin fired." FML

Dang the absence policy at your work sucks. At least it wasn't a no call no show. Time to break in that ass monkeys car and shut on his drivers seat.

I'm pretty sure the text saying OP was fired is illegal, labor departments can be particular about terminology if the said terminated isn't "on the clock"

It's not necessarily illegal, but definitely unethical not to mention extremely immature of the boss. This happened to my dads wife, but she knew what her boss was up to & documented everything & when they finally fired her, she took them to court & was showed them what her boss had been doing to her & got her job back & her old boss got demoted

By the way op retaliation and or harassment is illegal. Please hire a lawyer. I had to when I was sexually harassed by a guy at work. I reported to the manger and then he retaliated and fired me.

Unfortunately for you op NY has an employment at will law which means your boss can fire you for no reason at all. There are exceptions but you would have to prove you were discriminated against for one of the reasons the law protects (race, age, gender, etc.) fyl op, but don't retaliate, that would be illegal.

74... Can't just sue everyone. He had a legitimate reason to fire him. I got fired from a job when my grandmother was lifeflighted to Hermann and I called in. Some bosses aren't worth working for OP. Better luck next time! Eff your coworkers lives...

157, calling in sick two days in a row can be grounds for termination depending on company policy (and I don't know one company that doesn't reserve that right). Could be OP called in after their shift started or didn't have a dr note.

Right to work states they can do what they want. But I don't think ny is. I had to start dealing with that crap as I kept moving south.

Op sorry to hear that you ate going through that. But it may turn into a good thing. Sometimes getting pushed out of a crappy place to work is the best thing because most people will suck it up and stay miserable for the paycheck. Good luck finding something that you enjoy in a place that has a good environment quickly.

you didn't want to work there any way, with an asshole for a boss.
If you have evidence of what he was doing, your ultimate revenge might be to send a strongly worded letter to his boss, or to bring a suit of some sort. (Wrongful termination, unless you live in a 'Right to work' state)

Hey! He's not illiterate; he used "ure" instead of "ur". That's better than most texts I've seen.

That sucks, OP. If he'sbeen trying to get you fired, he probably got approval from higher-ups to let you go but it may not excuse the text. Look into it while you search for a better situation.

That sucks. My fiancé got fired almost the exact same way, but we live in a "right to work" state, so nothing really could be done. I hope you find a better place to work.
