    Only when they throw a story out in public with an unanswered circumstance that begs the question.

    Like I said earlier, I'm not as naive about people anymore.
    I'll let you have the last word I'm done now.

    I started the firestorm, so I'll ask my question again. This has nothing to do with rape, that was a 100% off the wall uncalled for response. There's no analogy at all to this situation.

    What if the firing was unjustified? Was there a recourse? What if it was justified? I'm curious as to the events that led up to the dismissal, especially with a Security Guard present. If it is in fact none of my business, I reserve the right to be non-sympathetic.

    I've had to fire people, and once in my life I was fired, so I'm speaking from experience. I had to take a former employer to Labor Court to recover wages he shorted me, so I know there are avenues of recourse available through the Department of Labor in every State if you've been wronged on the job.

    Why not just offer condolences to the guy for his difficult time, congratulate him on fulfilling the "keep calm and carry on" admonition, and not rub his face in the manure? If he was wrong, he knows it. If he was innocent and it was undeserved, he knows it. Now, he is merely sharing his pain over a bad experience. An encouraging word costs us nothing, but it might make his day.

    These days, they teach new management that they are not doing their job unless they find fault with a certain number of employees. So, you may get targeted. There may be personal reasons from someone above them. It stinks.

    unless they find fault with a certain number of employees.
    While this may make great apocryphal "Toxic Management" headlines,
    it is NOT the new normal.
    Never has been.
    Isn't now.

    I was raised to be loyal, be respectful, and give two weeks notice. 60 years later, I found I was the only party being loyal, I never worked anywhere more than 9 years, never got a two week notice on my departure, always gave two weeks notice which was refused both times and today became termination date, after being "let go" from close to 15 companies working incredible overtime hours, I found no one needed me as much as my family. I finally quit (they did give me a small pension for my 7 years) just short of 69 years old and at 70, they asked me to come back for a week as a consultant, with a couple more weeks offered up later in the summer. As an aside, I pulled the John Wayne line, "I'll have to charge retirement rate, double salary". They said fine, so I agreed. ya just never know....good luck with the next opportunity that comes down the road. It ain't over 'til it's over.

    I was part of a corporate "restructuring". For every older guy released they also got a younger guy. They cut a lot of vacation off the payroll and made it so we could not claim age discrimination. Funny thing was that I had trained my replacement. I moved on to a job closer to home, same money and a lot better boss. Only thing I missed was my 4 weeks vacation.
    Ever see the cartoon strip DILBERT? The PHB was my boss to a T.
    It was turning into a bad situation and probably the best thing for me.
