They said my job was “eliminated” due to the economic conditions. No, your boss has a say in it. They are all complete cut-throat liars and HR does nothing to protect you. My boss always told me “cya” as in cover your a–. He was referring to emails in which people defended themselves immensely. I always thought it was weird he would say that about emails he got, but then again he is a weird guy.
But I laugh now, because he laid off the only 3 people directly under him to cover his own a–. Now I know what he meant by cya. F— Flowserve.
