The radiation didn't kill him... coronary artery disease. So go light on the bacon!
Yeah he lived until 75 years old. Once he got out of treatment he had a few heart attacks (4), kidney and eye issues. TFA read like a horrible process to go through.
If a large company is going to have a layoff they legally must give notice.
OTH, a friend of mine gave notice trying to be nice because she felt loyal to the company and was immediately fired.
Personally, I think if you give notice and they do not give you two weeks pay, then you should be able to be legally counted as fired. They can't both say you quit and ignore your two week period.
I had a co-worker get fired 5 minutes before their shift was up. Stay classy, boss! I had one boss say I *had* to stay for 30 days, and I'm fairly certain I would have been terminated before then. Also who is to say the employer you're going to work for would want to wait 30 days?
You might have mail.
