Have you ever been fired?

I was put on 'leave of abscence' years ago when I got pregnant. I never went back. I think they really terminated me because they took my badge and smock. This was a long time ago and it just pushed me to college but I was wondering if anyone had ever been let go and why?

  • I guess you can say I set myself up to be fired from my last job. I was working for my second husband for about 4 years when he fired me because I filed for divorce! True story! LOL

  • I got fired years ago for being pregnant, long before anyone sued for it.

  • If you got "fired" for being pregnant that was a big no no. They didn't have to keep the same position but one similar.

  • I was "let go" because I was in the hospital for the second time during my first pregnancy due to morning sickness, and I was missing work too much.

  • i was fired for not doing something that was clearly not my job. i was working at a cafe, and somebody left a needle in the toilet, i was told to fish it out, and we did not have proper equipment to do so. i said no and they fired me 'for not doing my job'. i sued and they settled out of court.

  • I have fired a few times the one that sticks out the most was where I was told to do something by a dr as far as her schedule went and to "use" her initials (that was how we determined who scheduled what at the office). It pissed off the practice manager and I was fired for FORGERY. WTH. I didn't sign her name just her initials on a computer per her instructions. Okay I have vented.
