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.
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.
They say life is a bowl of cherries........... we just have to learn how to spit out the pips!
