I'm so sorry that happened to you! The unfairness of the situation really makes me mad. I hope that the people who knew about your illness and covered for you will be questioned so that they can support the truth of the incident. I'm not well-versed in corporate procedures, but I wonder if perhaps you should make an appointment with HR or write them a letter outlining the incident (or both)...? I'm sure there are other members who can better advise on that, but that's what comes to my mind. I hope you have a way of distracting & relaxing yourself tonight, so that you can get some rest. Again, I'm so sorry.....you have my full support and compassion. (((hugs)))
Good Morning bar,
My heart goes out to you so please know that I am sending prayers your way for a good outcome and hopefully you will keep your job. I know the waiting is so very hard. I wish you peace and love.
Becky, Karen is right. There should be no reason for you not to get unemployment. You were let go from your job. You did not leave willingly. Even if they gave you severance pay that would have nothing to do with collecting unemployment. So please do try. At least it will be something to help cover bills. I know it seems like it is hard as there are so many people applying, but you have to wait your turn and then fill out the forms and answer any questions. That you could be fired for being sick is just unconscionable. You might even have legal rights to retaining your job but I don't know how far you want to push it and you would have to find someone from legal aid to help you. It's just a thought. I will keep you in my prayers and hope that this process goes smoothly for you. Be sure to take good care of yourself. Do you have any family around for moral support? I hope so. At least you have all of us on HW.
