Hello All, I'm looking for you opinions here. I have been an Executive Assistant for five years. This job is very demanding as I work for four executives and worked long hours. The job was stressful. I was diagnosed with FM/CFS in 07, and took a one month leave of absence due to this from June 2 to July7. I was paid full salary the whole time I was off- this is a benefit of all salaried people there. Since I've been back ( two full weeks), I've had to leave for PT twice a week, and they have said "we'll do the best we can to make sure you get there". They don't like it when I'm gone. The company is struggling financially and I know especially in my position that the company that owns us is pressuring them to reduce headcount especially salaried people since our benefits and salaries cost the company so much money. Yesterday the VP of HR whom I also worked for waited until all the other execs had left for lunch and called me into his office and said "We're letting you go"...he sited all kinds of ridiculous reasons, none of which were true, and then said they were giving me three months severence including my COBRA insurance. I asked him "this isn't because I'm sick is it?", he acted a little nervous and said NO...but just reiterated please have a lawyer look over the documents you have 21 days to sign, and call me and come and get your personal effects on a weekend or evening..basically so I didn't "upset the office" I think. Don't you all think that's odd. I have been given glowing reviews and raises consistently. Never been written up, given verbal or written warnings or anything..I am still in shock. I could go into what all he said, but he was try to intimate that I wasn't doing my job basically!!! I said NO ONE had EVER told me any of what you're saying, I don't believe this. I know this is rather long, but just looking for your thoughts. What would you do?? Bottom line is I was looking to quit by year end anyway, but this smells I think.
