I was let go from my job, they called it job abandonment because I had a family emergency I need to take two weeks off. I was there for eight months I never called out sick, never requested time off, and was never late. Just because I didn’t want to give my manager specifics on why I needed time off because it was a personal family matter she told me if I didn’t show up I was abandoning my job. I’m not upset about it though. I learned a valuable lesson that day, loyalty sometimes is only one sided when it comes to the medical field. Be careful who you work for

I worked at the same company for 7 years, one day my boss grabbed me by my shirt (assaulted me) on camera . I quit the next day for that specific reason. I cant work there anymore. I filed for unemployment but was denied because the company told unemployment i quit for unjustified reason and on my own. Any ideas ? And i did appeal it also. Thanks !

Last week I started a new job. I was honest about my skills and received a ton of mixed messages ---one day it was "you will get the hang of things in time" and then the next day the owner was breathing down my neck! She just called me on a Sat to fire me! Did she do a favor though? It was a small business, they paid ok, no bennies, hired me pretty quickly I have to say....I am ticked off right now and upset as well...

My former boss just started a company and wanted to recruit me to work with her. There are a lot of growth opportunities with the projects that I’m passionate about. Unfortunately it’s a startup and they cannot offer the same kind of coverage that I need for my family. I’m very tempted to join her but my family is counting on my benefits since my husband lost his job last December. Family always comes first but I just feel a little depressed to put my career on hold.
