: I hope I'm not repeating myself. I apologize if I am.
: Our mom lost her job on March 30. She went to work and
: was expecting a normal workday. By 9:45am she was
: unemployed. She has worked at the university for
: almost 28 years. She worked in the school of nursing
: for 5 years. She got another full time position in a
: different department and would have been there 22
: years in August. Mom's position was eliminated.
: Another position in her department was also
: eliminated. Mom will get paid through May 17. She took
: this past week off from job hunting, although she
: keeps checking job openings at the university. She is
: trying to schedule a time to meet with a lady in the
: HR department to find out the best option for her. Mom
: could go into the temporary worker pool and hope jobs
: come along,or she can take her retirement and look for
: employment elsewhere. If she takes the retirement she
: doesn't think she'll be able to draw unemployment. Mom
: isn't even mad about losing her job. She is mad (and
: hurt) about the way it was done. A month or so ago she
: was asked to write up the steps she does to register
: people in a specific program. The guy that was let go
: was asked to do the same thing for a program he used.
: Now she knows why her supervisor wanted those
: directions. He knew then that mom and the other person
: were going to be laid off. She said she thinks that
: was poopy. Well, that's not exactly what she said, but
: we are too polite and refined to repeat it. Mostly mom
: is hurt. She could have been given a heads-up about it
: coming. It would still have been hard on her, but she
: could have been prepared AND she could have started
: bringing her stuff home. Instead, she went in this
: past Tuesday to pack her stuff.
: We apologize for the long post. But if anyfur wants to
: go yak in her former supervisor's shoes, they are
: welcomed to do so!
