Hi all
Long story short....
Had a work injury, on and off work for a while, developed severe depression, didn't work for 18 months, developed fibromyalgia also.  Through processes related to workers comp, found new job, going well, they had a subsidy to employ me, hours increasing, boss happy.  I was improving their work processes, increasing productivity - small business - fitting in well.  Got 2 pay rises in 2 months.  Was told that if I had of been able to work full time, would have been offered the new managers position - thought everything was great.
Yesterday, got called in to the office - told they were "restructuring" and because I couldn't work full-time right now - goodbye.
I am soooooooooooo (*&^% angry!!! and soooooo upset.
I feel so used, and really let down.  This guy employed me on the full understanding of my situation - I was increasing my hours as my doc would let me - he was getting the subsidy for employing me - he was getting darn good value for money - and now this.
I'm gutted.
And what really gets my goat - apart from him being a b*&^ard - is that the subsidy he was getting will not be available to any other prospective employer - they only offer it once.
So how do I explain what's happened to any possible new employers.... ggrrrrrr
I just need a break - I thought I'd found it, and now I feel so let down.
 
Thanks for letting me vent.
I'm actually ok - funny how anger can fire you up lol - just not sure how I'll go about approaching prospective employers - but something will work out.
 
Cheers
Deb

Hi Deb
I am so very sorry that you are going through this.What a mess!
I do not understand why employers treat their employees like that but they do.

Can you go to and sign up for unemployment?

Hi Deb,

It makes me really angry to hear about these stories because the employers never treat the employee fairly. about a year ago there was a "management restructure" where I work and one of the guys (Who had given them 20+ years service was thrown to the side because he couldnt immediately fit into a role they wanted. I would explain this to potential employers as a form of redundancy. You had your old job "taken away" and you couldn't fit into the new role hence you were terminated.

I hope you manage to get something else soon. Perhaps a break is what you need?

Thanks Shy and Darren

It is very frustrating - but I've had my cry and now the anger has motivated me so I've pulled my boots on and I'm out there looking.  I know I have good skills and have something to offer, I just need the chance and a bit of flexibility and I'll be fine.

I appreciate your encouragement and support.

I figure karma will get him lol

Cheers

Deb
