That’s awful. Out of curiosity, how was he/she stopped? Is it illegal in your state? I know a few people this has happened to in Texas.

Petty. Sorry to hear that.

My boss convinced me to stay after I resigned (it was over a disagreement on how to finish the edit on a campaign). We did it my way, and I went back to work, thinking things were back to normal. A month later, after the project was out the door, he fired me.

Not surprised. I’ve seen it happen before. Never waffle on resignation or even bringing in a counter offer. Once they know one foot is out the door, they have no problems helping the other foot out.

Anyone have experience with having trouble with background checks because you got laid off between when you submitted your job application and got the offer? This might come up and I’m afraid of what to say or do if it does.
This happened back in February, and the

Hi All! I need some help. I got recently laid off and I am going to start interviewing for roles soon. Should I tell recruiter that I’m not in the company anymore? If so, what should I say? (I got fired due to my performance, but my manager set me up for failure from the beginning, aka toxic leader).
Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?
