Her Shady Employer Suddenly Fired Her – But When Everything Went Wrong, Guess Whose Phone Was Ringing?

Nothing is worse than being earmarked for being fired! When management has decided it is your time to go. That’s precisely what happened to this woman; luckily, her work paid the price!

A Dedicated Employee

Meet the original poster (OP), a hardworking woman who gave her all to her job at a poorly managed nonprofit organization.

But little did she know that her dedication would soon be met with betrayal and injustice.

Above and Beyond

OP got her job at the organization because her boss was her mother-in-law (MIL), and her grandma also worked there part-time.

Despite the nepotism, OP worked tirelessly, going above and beyond her job responsibilities, even taking care of inventory, which was not her duty.

A Fallout With a Coworker

Trouble started when OP had a falling out with a coworker, who was also her good friend.

One day, while OP’s baby was in her coworker’s care, the baby rolled off the bed and got injured.

OP confronted her coworker, who denied any responsibility and even lashed out at her!

The incident caused tension at work, with the coworker bad-mouthing OP every chance she got.

She thought the situation would resolve itself when the coworker left for a vacation, despite being advised not to take time off due to a workplace move.

But to OP’s surprise, it was she who got fired instead.

They Chose Her Coworker Over Her

Her employers told her that she was a “temporary employee” and her three-month contract was up, which was news to her.

Too Shocked to Process

OP was stunned at that moment.

She thanked her employers for the opportunity, and then she ran away. 

Resentment Grew

But OP’s anger grew when she realized the shady and unfair treatment she had received.

To add insult to injury, they asked her to train her replacement the same day she was fired!

Things Started to Crumble

She left and didn’t hear from them again until her former coworker, who had caused trouble earlier, came back and told her the big boss quit because she didn’t have a ride.

The assistant kitchen manager also quit because she couldn’t handle the workload alone!

The Organization Was in Chaos

The organization was now in chaos, with only two people left to handle the grunt work in the midst of a major move.

Desperate, the big boss called MIL for help, and MIL suggested begging OP to return since she did two people’s work.

Everyone at the organization has urged the big boss to rehire OP, but she has not received any calls from them yet.

In the meantime, OP was not one to take things lying down.

Shady Practices

She realized they had never given her a contract, and her direct boss had promised her a permanent full-time position.

She suspected that the organization deliberately avoided providing written contracts to engage in shady practices, which she believed was illegal.

OP has decided to take action and plans to report them.

Another One Bites the Dust

To make matters worse, OP’s grandma, who used to be in charge of the organization, was unfairly removed from her position by the big boss.

OP felt that the big boss was biased against her family and even commented that there were “too many last names in the kitchen.”

Wronged

OP was furious and felt that the organization had wronged her.

She had given her all to the job, but the organization had treated her poorly and fired her without warning.

However, the tables had turned, and the organization was now suffering without her. 

The Upper Hand

OP felt a sense of satisfaction knowing she had the upper hand, and she planned to act against the organization for its unethical practices.

She Would Speak Out Against Them

She had been a dedicated and hardworking employee, and her colleagues were clearly feeling her absence.

The chaos and panic caused by the sudden departure of three employees was a consequence of the organization’s poor management and mistreatment of its employees.

Empowered

OP’s resolve has grown stronger as she has seen the organization struggling to cope with the aftermath of her departure.

She feels empowered to take action and hold the organization accountable for its unethical practices.

She Deserved Better

She knows that she deserves better treatment and that she has the right for her employees to treat her with respect and fairness in the workplace.

A Cautionary Tale

OP’s story serves as a cautionary tale to others who may be in similar situations.

It’s important to stand up for yourself and not tolerate mistreatment in the workplace, be aware of the potential consequences, and have a plan in place for the worst-case scenario.

It’s also a reminder that nepotism and favoritism can lead to a toxic work environment and should be addressed by employers before it’s too late.

Get Your Own Back

Redditors gave OP some advice. One user said, “Tell them you’ll come back for double the pay.

You do the work of two; you get paid for two. Only stay long enough to find another job and then quit without notice.”
