the company my mom works for (as controller) has been in the process of being sold for the last couple of months – throughout the entire process she had been repeatedly assured that her job was safe with the new company.

the sale became final today and at 4:30pm the new owner came into her office and informed her that they would not be keeping her on their staff and since they had not accepted or processed her w-2 information she wasn’t actually an employee of their company and wouldn’t be getting a severance.

this after my mom worked for the original company for nearly 7 years and spent the last few months working with the new company to ensure a smooth transition.

nice.

so now, she’s 60 years old, unemployed and scared about her future.

there’s a special place in hell for assholes like the new companies owner.
