Experience is very important in a job.
It is a sort of investment for yourself. It basically means you will get paid higher in your next job if you have enough experience. And if you have worked in an industry for a very long time, that also means you deserve some sort of respect when you are close to your retiring age. However, many managers hate those old employees that have stuck with the company before they were even born can have more power than a hierarchy would demand.
This also means they try to do anything they can to get them fired. Although, that wasn’t the whole reason why these managers wanted this guy gone. Apparently, they were implementing some changes that he wasn’t happy with. And rather than just letting it go, they tried to pressure him into doing whatever they wanted. Surprisingly enough, it did not end well for them. You can read the whole story by scrolling below.
From what I can tell, the story is absolutely based on fact.
Every country should have this law.
Basically, he was a very experienced employee who deserved respect.
I mean, he doesn’t sound the worst, to be honest.
And he did everything by the law as well.
Things were going well for him and the company.
They promised a lot but delivered nothing when it came to it.
After all, no manager likes someone having more power than them.
Honestly, you can’t force someone to be cheery.
He was well aware of where this was going and he was ready for it.
I mean he did warn them but they did not heed it.
Apparently, they hadn’t read their own policy thoroughly.
The managers should have probably read up on this.
He had also already prepared a case to send them as well.
He was also lucky enough to get more job offers.
Why would he want to stay with them after this at all?
It was clear that the company needed him but there was nothing they could do.
Anger is never the answer especially when you are in the wrong.
This time HR contacted him asking him to come back.
And they had to accept his absorbent fee because of this.
This is beautiful. I’m not sure of my favorite part; the pre-prepared cease and desist letters on the patents he owned, the consulting fee being six times his regular pay, or the 24 months severance package.
Actually, I know my favorite part: that those a**hole managers still had to go clap and cheer every morning because they don’t know how to do anything else, while they were hemorrhaging money. Just glorious. –chickachickabowbow
It was the manager’s fault anyway.
I bet they were regretting their decision now.
He did however continue to work for them for a very long time.
And the managers also got what they deserved.
I would have loved to be able to say this in my previous job.
So he was making triple the money for half the work, kept his side business, and screwed over his enemies in perpetuity by fucking with their bonuses—all while being completely untouchable for all practical purposes?
That magnificent bastard. I salute him! –big_sugi
