So last Wednesday my boss called me into his office to ask me how I would feel about not working here anymore. I really had no answer. I LOVE my boss, but hate my 2 co-workers and in an office of 4 people it makes work very awkward. So as i really hated worked here and was hoping to stop working after baby #2 is born in July.
I told my boss i was preggo on Dec 21st - he seemed happy for me. He asked if i was coming back after i gave birth, I told him I really don;t know, need to go over my finances but will let him know no loater than March so there is enough time for me to train a replacement.
Then on Jan 18th he tells me that since he felt i was probally was not coming back anyway - and he needed somene with different skills than me anyway - he feels he did not want to wait until March. he is letting me work for another month or two (I think it might be 3) then offering me 1-2 months of severance pay, also allowing me to collect unemployment insurance which can now be extended for up to 2 years in NY.
I was in shock! He said my work is fine, but the office is busier now and he now needs an admin that can also place trades, which I am not certified to do nor do I plan on becoming certified.
I have mixed feeling about the whole thing - I am hurt, i am angry b/c I think my two co-workers arranged for this to happend as they are always in his ear and they are bogged down with work at the present time which i can not help with b/c I dod not have a certification. Personally I think they are going to have a hard time finding someone who is certified AND willing to do all my menial filing, answering phones, etc .... AT THE SAME TIME - I hate coming into work and cry often b/c these ladies are so mean to me so I guess over all I am happy...
Still loking into if I can sue or not being he laid off me and only me 4 weeks after i told him i was pregnant...and it TOTALLY sucks having ot come into work now that i have been let go - so awkward - they didn't hire anyone yet, but it will be really odd for me to train my replacement and try to be nice to them!
