After 21 years I got terminated for making an accounting error. No severance, nothing.

Saw the movie Leaving Las Vegas, maybe not a bad idea.

Sorry to hear that, zorgen. That's ****ed up. Hope you find work soon. In the meantime, take advantage of your time off and ride the wheels off your bike. :)

Wow, that is [email protected]#$&d up! That is not right. Do you know if you're part of Union? I'm sure you've thought of all your options, but there has to be something you can do, if you wanted to. I'm curious...were you close to retiring? Some hack companies cut fire your @$$ just so they don't have to pay for your retirement or pension. Good luck bro...

If you were hired at a time when there were procedures in place for employee termination, and these procedures were not followed, you may want to talk to a lawyer. If the error was made in good faith (it was a mistake, not on purpose), you may have a case. And after 21 years, for them to just fire you without severence, they seem to want to get over on you.

Is your company's name Enron? Why the hell would they fire someone that worked for over 2 decades over an accounting mistake (assuming the mistake was not intentional)? :mad:

I scheduled the movement of Natural Gas for the local unility here in Bellevue Washington. I don't remember making the error but I'll be the first to say I'm human and I probably did make the mistake, my first.

Funny thing is I was sick of my boss who was a screamer so I gave notice, left the job on an agreed day and had a new job lined up in the company to start the following Monday. Because of this error they recinded the new job offer and terminated me.

What I don't understand is how they can terminate me from a job after I've already left it.

Spoke with two lawyers about it and they both said the company can do anything to you at any time for any reason or no reason. Seems like a good reason to work for a union in the future....

Sound like your boss didnt like you leaving his dept. He may have backstabbed you.
My previous boss cant stand me now because I got promoted past him. Now he wouln't do any work for me. (he's not my employee, but he's supposed to do things for me at times).

You were nice enough to give them a notice and quit. Mysteriously, they find out that you made a mistake and they fire you for that AFTER you quit. What a lame set-up. :no

Wow, that sucks man. Sound like your boss is having financial problems, wants you to work without pay. It's nice to hear from you again but I wish it was in better circumstances. I wish you the best, I hope you don't end up in my shoes, their not very comfortable.

:(

Also, I'd like to thank everyone for their kind words. It nice to get the encouragement from everyone. Honestly, it helps.

:)

No, unfortunately I'm not represented by a union..wish I was. They've really done me in financially..I'm looking for union work from this point on.

Thanks bud.

Don, man that sucks ass.:fact They should not have done that
to you. I'm glad you have the one paid off. I'm the one who sent
you my invoice from Alpha Motor Sports in S.C. to use as ammo
for your expensive dealers in your area. I hope you can find
something soon. Just hang in there bud and enjoy some riding.

Thats shitty Zorgen, I feel for ya. Sounds like your boss was a real dickhead anyway. Who knows, maybe this happens for a reason. Hope you find a job where you get paid even more, just to show that dickhead up. Either that or strike the lotto, and don't forget your forum buddies that all wished you well. :sneaky ;)
