“I don’t need your two-week notice, you’re fired”: Shameless boss fires worker after filing a letter of resignation

Do you remember how nice it was to receive two weeks’ notice at a job you hate? The bewildered and envious expressions on the faces of colleagues (‘this bastard!‘); Thinking over and over again about the last thing you say to your boss before dropping the microphone. What is the best way to start a new chapter in your life …

At least that’s what the user thought “distorted morality.” As he says in his p / anti-work storyThe exciting job offer that the author received just before the Christmas holidays was a blessing and a curse. Out of excitement, he prepared a letter of resignation. But after he submitted it, the author of the story was greeted with a rather unpleasant comment from his boss. Unsurprisingly, nearly 80% of people who quit their jobs describe “lack of appreciation” as their cause for leaving.

A moment passes, and the next thing he realizes is that he was fired on the spot, the same two weeks before the start of his new performance. And while it may not sound like a terrible Christmas, the way things turned out doesn’t seem quite right. At least, more than 22 thousand users think so about this unpleasant and, as it turned out, quite popular scenario.

Bored panda… “It doesn’t matter that he dropped the gun. You cannot lose wages if you quit, or even if they can show that you would quit. ”

Sounds pretty disturbing, right? It is because of such stories that the two weeks notice method seems to be rather outdated and illogical… Delving into this discussion, Joseph agrees that while being fired without a good reason may seem unfair, states and countries in Europe that do prohibit firing without a reason also have their drawbacks. “In the US, people can get a second, third and many other chances in life,” he explained. “Take, for example, a person who has served time for a felony: in the United States, an employer can risk a candidate with an unclear work history, arguing that if necessary, she can fire him.” When nearly one in three U.S. citizens have a criminal record, according to latest data – it only seems fair.

In countries like Japan, Brazil or France, systems are built to protect employees from being fired without a perfectly legitimate reason, as they should. However, the compromise is: “It’s harder to get even a second chance. [if you have a criminal record] because you are much more difficult to get rid of. “
