I was just fired

I missed too many days without leave so they officially fired me about 2 hours ago.

 

Just when I am getting bankruptcy and was starting to save. I will reapply to the State because I put in 16 years. I'm in shock right now and not fully grasping what's going on.

 

Thanks @Biggie for supporting me through this.

Yup, No loyalty. At the end of the day we are just numbers. I wish more people understood this instead of killing themselves for a faceless corporation. 

Absolutely, that was my experience at a Fortune 500 company.

December 2017, signed an extension to my international employee contract -- that guaranteed me 5-years of salary upon my return to Canada, even if there was no appropriate job.

December 2018, received a performance  review putting me in top 15% of my related work group, they extended my visa for 2 years.

March 2019, received 130% of bonus.

May 2019.  Got made redundant, given 6 weeks to leave the country with none of the typical assistance upon returning.  (They had the gall to tell me that I shouldn't have sold the house, that they bought from me.)

 

TLDR; you can't rely on big corporations to treat you as more than a number.

I had a state job for 16 years so technically yes, I was employed by the state of Pennsylvania. 

 

I'm really quite surprised that a termination action for a government job could occur so quickly and without apparently a warning of some sort.

 

I'm well and truly sorry for you :(

I mentioned above I had warnings. There was an active investigation and I had a big meeting about this two weeks ago. I plead my case but that wasn't good enough. Yes...this is devastating.

Warnings in this instance are stupid. Warning, "you better stop grieving and get your mind together otherwise you'll get fired" - Huh? Complete BS. I'm with the lawyering up camp. This is like firing a disabled person because they are disabled.

This is your third and final warning. Get out of that wheel chair and learn to walk or you’re fired.
