If you were terminated for bs reasons, how do you handle that in interviews?

If you're a recruiter, what could a candidate say to NOT get ruled out in this case?
One former colleague who tried to support me through the toxic situation suggested saying layoff because that's happening all over and what he did in a similar case--fired after a family member died.
Mine was basically due to a toxic, unsupportive workplace when a close family member was dying. As he's dead now, I'm focused on moving forward and just want to focus on my interest for each role. Without my last workplace's abusive response causing me to be ruled out.

I am on my way into maternity leave (29 weeks) and don't want to return to my job. I want to start a new job after my leave. How common is this? Does anyone else have any experience with this?

An employee's spouse has previously fought and kicked cancer's butt. Unfortunately, it has returned for the 3rd time. I'd love to hear some ways on how to offer support to this family through an employer, aside from a meal train. Thanks in advance!

a relocated for a job in July, everything was going well. I started to really love my job for the first time and was going over and beyond. Covering managers shifts day and night and more.. never gotten a written up or anything. They fired me without any reasons all they said was you’re not the right fit for us we will have to part ways. I told them they had me relocate for this job and now you want to tell me I’m not the right fit.
I had to break my lease to my apartment and move with my parents. But I am so traumatized. I don’t think I ever would like to work another 9-5

Salary request question…
I recently interviewed with a medium-sized medical center for a position as a Practice Manager in NC. The job entails managing three physician’s offices in three different physical locations. Since I don’t have any experience in the medical field but I do have managerial experience, how would I come up with a salary $ amount? This is the first time in my 20+ years of working that I’ve been asked to do this. Help pls!

This is how most of my generation (Millennials) and Gen Z feel.
What's going to happen as more boomers retire, and there is no one to take their place, because employers can't be bothered to train younger people anymore?
TRAIN NEW EMPLOYEES. You're never going to find the perfect employee. Stop requiring 5 years experience for entry level positions. Stop with the 3 to 4 round interviews.

I'm launching my own HR/Management consulting company and am currently working on digital courses for new managers.
What would be some courses you think new managers MUST have, LIKE to have, NICE to have? And who would you recommend I target these courses too? Companies? HR professionals?
