Dear Evil HR Lady,
I have worked for my company for two years, and in my current position for a little over a year now. My boss is very nosy and always wants to know what is going on in everyone’s life. She gets upset if she feels like she’s not being told what she wants. I told her that my long-distance boyfriend has been looking to buy a house and that the lease on my apartment was up October 31. Yesterday she called me into her office and told me about the plan to hire someone overseas, and then she said she thinks the best date for my last day is November 1. I was surprised. I told her i didn’t give notice to her when I told her about my relationship development.
She said that from what I had said about my boyfriend and my lease she took that as meaning that I was leaving in mid-November and that she was owed notice, so she was scheduling my last day for November 1. I should note that most people in this company quit by simply walking out because the company treats people horribly. So she wants to say I resigned, but she also wants me to work the month of October and train the overseas team as well. I said I deserved a bonus for doing the training, and she said no, it’s part of my job. (It’s not in my job description! I even asked for a copy of my job description and HR wouldn’t give it to me.)
I did not resign. I never told her I was leaving. I think I’m owed severance and a bonus for training my replacement. What can I do?
