When you go online and you see your job posted on the job bank

Ya that's right! I just found an ad posted two weeks ago from the company I work for advertising my job. But not only my job but everybody's job where I work. We have no idea what is going on but we are all just waiting for the day to come when they tell us we are done!! I only found out about it because a friends contacted me on FB and asked if the jobs at the company where I work were still available. Before that I didn't even know they were hiring. Sure enough there was my job. I guess that is what I get after 31 years of service..so by the looks of it I will be unemployed soon. I am beyond devastated since they are doing it all behind our backs. I guess I will just wait and see how long it is before we are gone and our replacements come in.

When I taught, teachers who had tenure and were making too much money due to teaching for many years had their lives made miserable by the administration so that they would quit. They could hire 3 just-out-of-college teachers for the amount of money a long-time teacher made. So unfair to loyal workers.

They have to give notice for layoffs. But why? To replace all of you with cheaper employees that have to be trained?

I would go to the boss and straight up ask him what is going on. After all your time there, you deserve honesty.

Haven't you got trade unions in Canada where you could complain and which could fight for you? I can't imagine anything like that in Germany without an outcry.

So will that mean whatever pension you have coming is gone? They want to hire new people for lower wages I think. That is really sneaky. Is this on a legitimate site or is someone messing with the company?

Argh! A similar thing happened to Hubby at the beginning of the year. An employee from the other company location found an auction announcement online for the company's equipment. Auction? Omg . . . the news spread and everyone was waiting for the ax. Sure enough in January, the company fizzled . . . but how sick that they all knew from before only because that employee found something online. But luckily for Hubby and a few others, a side gig came in the works thanks to a key person . . . but everyone else had to move on. I am sorry you are having to go through this . . . I hope they at least have the decency to tell guys what's going on and soon - it's not cool to do these things behind your backs - especially after so many years of working there!!

Two people have been let go. They reassure us that our jobs are safe but we never know. Just work day to day and see what happens.

Oh, wow! I'm really hoping someone made a mistake and posted the jobs at your company by mistake, Laurel! Rather than wait and worry, you should approach your manager and ask what is going on. At least then, you'd know and wouldn't have the worry hanging over your head. Good luck!

Wow, 31 years and they treat you like that. Do you not have a union or something similar? Would you at least get redundancy money?

They could be expanding their business actually. Why not find out about the future plans that your company is having?

Wow that's really a kick in the pants. I hate to think that everyone will be unemployed. Could they be expanding? I certainly hope you don't lose your job. I've been down that road and it stinks.

Oh my goodness! Sorry to hear this. They shouldn't be doing this to you guys. They should at least be giving you notice, or something. I can't believe they're doing it to all of you guys.

That's not nice neither fair. Instead, I would do the same on inverese and start looking for another job. Just in case they really start to fire people, you already may have a new offer.
