  • Unfortunately they probably can fire you. That doesn't mean they will. If they are willing to work with you, make sure you go the extra mile to keep your job. Never be late, stay over if necessary, that sort of thing. I also would update my resume if I were you in case the worst happens. If it does, ask for severance pay, that will help. You don't say why your husband is not working, but maybe he needs to see if he can find something in case you have to live on unemployment for a while.

  • It's not very likely that they would tell someone else you were going to be fired before they would tell you. Sounds like the rumor mill to me.
