    They don't like smart people. Seems actionable. Report back.

    Getting Shit Canned

    If you are ďat willĒ with no contract it would require discrimination based on age, race, gender, or religion. To prove that there usually has to be more than an isolated incidence. From my experience theyíve already cleared this with their legal department. Good luck.

    Best o' luck, Brockster! Reach out if you want to bitch about it.

    Went through similar shit about five (5) years ago following a change in senior leadership at my (then) university. But I left on my terms and almost immediately helped found a couple of hi-tech startups, one of which still has a pulse. So, hey, I might still become a billionaire and so can you!

    1. Is it really worth more dollars to fight and settle after a couple years and legal expenses?
    2. Can you really not find a better job in this current economy? Really?
    3. Did you ever read any of the old threads about Punani's season of funemployment at Kirkwood? It's the best spancership ever.

    Sucks Brock. If only you had employable skills. I vote to pick up stakes before your commute time doubles again.

    Bad news from the Brockster. Don't become Biff, unless of course you flop on Djongo's couch and ski all winter.

    Use this as an opportunity to start your own gig.
    Then you can be the canner, not the cannie.

    Not enough info to offer advice. It makes a big difference whether you are a roofer or VP of a multinational corporation. And the terms of the letter - did they give any severance, did they comply with the WARN act, or did they simply fire you? Yadda, yadda.

    Anyway, getting fired sucks. Itís happened to me a few times, and each time itís a shock. Best thing you can do is move on quickly.
