    Default More Bad News (OT)

    So today was going to be my 2nd day back to work since our loss. I went yesterday and everything was fine... it was a little hard to be telling the people who didn't know yet (there was one woman at my work who would ask me everyday how I felt, she was so sweet and so interested in our pregnancy) but other than that it was okay. Today I go in and I'm a little bit late (I was babysitting my sister's kids... hard on its own)... like not even 15 minutes, but anyway MY manager (too much of a wuss to even do it himself) sends me to go talk to a different manager (the one I've been closer too and who was really helping support me through all the pg worries I've been having) and he pulls me into the office and straight up says "the other two managers feel like they've told you a lot not to be late. I tried to stick up for you cause I know you've got a lot going on right now... but it was 2 against 1 and they decided to terminate you." Then he just walks out of the office.
    I haven't even been there for over a week... there is SO much going on in my life right now.. and I mean, I've worked there for two years! I've given up EVERY holiday to be at work, I've put in to many extra hours and done everything they've asked me plus more!
    This is just ridiculous... I can't believe they fired me. DSO job can't pay for our new apartment alone, let alone anything else. I'm the one who makes money. Plus he's shipping out for the marines in less than a month... I have to find a new job now and this is not a good time. We don't have anything saved up... and I'm worried about having extra expenses from the hospital bills and such. I have this weird insurance from the state that only covers adults if you're pregnant (its to make sure all kids get healthcare...they don't have one for adults)... so I'm worried that they won't cover anything that's happened since the loss. Like the hospital, drs appointments and blood work... if they don't cover that, I don't know what I'll do.
    Its kinda okay... I hated that job and had already started looking for a new one... but I was really waiting to get a new job lined up before I quit so we wouldn't be without money. *sigh*
    Thanks for letting me vent guys.

    I'm sorry that they were such assholes, so you were a few minutes late, have a little compassion. I can't believe they did that to you. What do you do? I know I am late sometimes, at the company I work for if you are more than 15 minutes late you get written up and CAN be terminated after 3 times, but it's up to the manager. Do you think they were upset b/c you were off, to me that's total discrimination!!! I hope you can find something better very soon.

    What a crock of s***. Surely, there must be someone in upper management that can help you out. They sound like a real bunch of unpassionate assholes anyway. I was spitting nails just reading your post. I can't believe that they did this...its so callous and pathetic. Try and have a decent weekend with your DSO and KUP. Sorry honey

    I'm sorry. Jessa, you and I are just having a rough time right now, aren't we? I hope everything ends up working out for you. What horrible, insensitive bosses! They obviously do NOT know what it's like to lose a pregnancy. Good luck on the new job search! KUP.

    {{{Hugs}}} I'm sorry you are going through all that. If there are hospital bills that aren't covered you can probably make payment arrangements. Most places are very understanding when it comes to stuff like this. If you tell them that you can only send 10 bucks a month they are ok b/c you show an intent to pay, kwim? So try not to worry about that.

    I would submit some type of compalint. Normally there has to be some sort of paper trail expalining termination., like nurmerous wrtie ups, etc...Can you apply for unemployment in the meantime? Your bosses will contest it I'm sure but (I used to work in HR) unless there is some horrible offense you have committed, they won't win.

    ((((HUGS)))))) I am sorry you are dealing with that ontop of your loss.
    It isn't fair. I hope you find another job that is more supportive for/to you.

    Good luck

    I'm sorry. Where do you live and what did you do?
    You should be eligible for unemployment, though it takes a while to kick in. There are ways to fight the terminatin, but is it worth it if they are going to treat you like that?
    Let me know if you need help with a resume, I just updated mine.
