It can happen, especially at smaller employers. However, I seriously doubt that it would be done that way at a Big 4. The potential legal challenges and risk are too great. The is also a process for terminations that requires involvement of HR and proper documentation of business reason for termination in case it is legally challenged.

At PwC? I would say no, risk averse as they are.

Yes. Happened to me once at a now shutdown small company where my boss, a white Christan Evangelical, knew I was gay, wasn't a fan of it, and I'm also a POC. He was my coworker before he became my boss. He proceeded to give me a shitty performance review based on the fact that I was covering for him for two weeks while he was sick with the swine flu and barely got my work done. He called me into a room with HR to deliver the performance review. She left then he proceeded to tell me how much he hated me. My only mistake was not carrying an mini voice recorder with me. He hired my replacement before firing me. The day he fired me, he called me into an office with his manager there the day we didn't have our HR consultant there and just fired me on the spot. HR contacted me and just said I was getting something as severance and apologized. I figured fuck it I'm not going to pursue legal action then found a much better job a couple of months later with a very diverse team where I felt much more welcomed and mentally stimulated. If you're ever wondering whatever happened to him, I believe karma got him back and has been forcing him to try to ask for my forgiveness since then. I won't go into the specifics as to how I believe karma has served him.

Don’t they call it being coached out?

Hey Receuiters. Have you ever received a full time job offer with an employment contract that included a 1 year non compete clause in your specific industry? I would be joining a late stage start up and an at will employee with no severance package. I understand the non solicitation clause and that part makes sense. However, limiting my future employer options for a year seems harsh. I live in NY which is a right to work state. Thoughts?
