    ok so we got in bed early tonight thinking we would actually get a bit of sleep. shortly after dozing off we got a phone call (at 9pm). the person called repeatedly until my brother answered it. they asked for my husband. i didnt recognize the name until after my brother hung up. anyhow it was one of the "big guys" at my husbands job. he was calling to inform him that someone who wasnt even HIS boss had put in for him to be laid off!! as of 12-4 he no longer has a job! laid off by someone NOT HIS BOSS!!

    I would still be going in until the 'Boss' tells me otherwise.

    This is strange. Calling someone at late at night at home to tell them that they will be laid off nearly three weeks from now by someone they don't work for? Sounds like a prank call--especially since they kept calling.

    Employers give people notice AT WORK in almost all cases. And unless the boss was also laid off, notification is usually by one's direct boss or by the Human Resources Dept.

    Quote:yea but the company has been telling him for a year once the changes in the shop were complete he would be hired on "full time". by full time they mean he would have a better position there. why they use full time for that i dont know. now suddenly they let someone who isnt even his boss lay him off for NO REASON none the less. which isnt against the laws here.
