Can you clarify what they did illegally
I think it’s pro! “Pro” imo doesn’t need to be complex. Taking a years’ salary is absolutely huge.
"Oh yes, there's no way firing someone we just taught how to keep us out of legal trouble could possibly backfire..."
A year's salary sounds pretty pro to me.
I wanna know what happened to the asshat that fired you...
Again, I applaud the OP on the length of this post, perfect.
(I have previously lauded OP's for keeping their posts succinct)
They've got to be the stupidest people on the planet. How are you going to wrongly treat and fire the person who keeps your company from getting into legal trouble? Idiots, the lot of them!
