I was fired twice do to outsourcing and I let my new employer know about it. You are better off letting a prospective employer know exactly why you were terminated without sugarcoating it. But try not to show bitterness over it.I always take the attitude that it was their loss and not mine. That I am the best in my field. It worked for me anyway.
Is it legal for a company to lay you off, stating that is due to budget cuts, and then they hire someone else for your position?
feel sorry for jalepeno... I got let terminated back on January 10, 2010. When I wasa hired I was told 700-1000 per week commissisions were very possible. After 2 weeks and my first supervisor fired (for breaking rules and regulations repeatedly) It became very apparent that 700 a week was not going to happen. More like 250-350 for working almost 65 hours a week. When I asked where is the momney well you can guess what has happenned next, in the dog house. Finally terminated after hearing the same BS over and over. AND they told the unemployment examiner I was terminated for insubordination. Ok pretty soon, my turn.
Lori is right, but good luck suing...first you have to find an attorney that will take the case - most won't talk to you unless you have proof.
This is all well, and good, but what does one do when the former employer lies about why you were let go? What do you do when the former employer makes false reports on your DAC report?When a former employer (M.W.Trucking,Inc.) lies to prospective employers, it just proves he's lost his own integrity.I have more respect for someone who tells the truth, as opposed to one (Mark Washatka) that cannot, or refuses to.
