It’s often HR’s job to make sure notifying employees about layoffs goes as smoothly as possible. A Web site has been collecting stories about when that wasn’t the case.
Gawker asked its readers to send stories about firings that were handled badly.
Among recent submissions:
- The employee who was told by a relative who worked at the same company that she was laid off
- A worker who found a document regarding her dismissal before she was notified, and
- The HR rep who was let go the day after organizing all the paperwork for exit packages for other employees.
