So our team recently had a shuffle. Now, there is one individual contributor and three managers. I did not realize this until I went to the first meeting and realized that my boss was giving instructions to a new manager who is now telling me what to do and the person who is keeping track of deliverables is a Program Manager (again for one person's work). Of course, I have a workload equivalent to three people but now I am the only one producing work product. What insane corporate math is this?

Would you stop working on a contract or temp role if you weren't being paid?
How far "past due" do you let the agency, client, or company go as a contractor before you stop working for them? Curious!

I was just let go from my job after 15 years.
I had held on to this job, although my manager was toxic and hostile towards me for many years. Constantly threatenting to fire me and would retaliate or only give me half of my annual bonus. I found out i waa being let go when i received a direct deposit a week in advance and in the middle of the week. It wasnt until the next day the CFO and my new manager had scheduled a review meeting on a Thursday later in the day. I did get emotional as I was in disbelief. I didnt get a severance package and only got paid out my 300 hours of vacation time. It was only enough to cover me for a month. No benefits for my son and I. A few hours later the CFO calls me tetellingretelling me she felt bad about what i said and was willing to offer me a severance package. In that package it mentions i cannot sue them for wrongful termination or even disclose what i went through. Everything was verbal. Yes, i cried, was called a bitch the N word, discriminated against and she took advantage of me knowing i needed my job. In short, I had to let all the board members know what i had endured and how my health declined, stress, miscarriages and my family had also been effected by my employer. How do I go about asking for at least a years worth of my income and health benefits. Something reasonable would be helpful. Ive been looking for work even while i was employed and its been difficult. Any guidance will be helpful. Thank you very much

Well everyone I did it again and became a Whistleblower at another company.
The conditions were unsafe and very toxic. I do regret what I did because employers don't care about you. All they care about is productivity and their bottom line. I'm very proud of myself and I hope many employees wake up and start fighting for their rights at the workplace. I want not just women but men as well to fight for their rights.

How long does everyone have to wait, when working a temp or contract role, to be paid?
I have sent in timesheets every 15 days to the company, and have not been paid yet for Jan 16-31, or Feb 1-15. Usually the company pays within a week. It's not stated in the contract how often they will pay out, but rather that the timesheets/ invoices from me need to be every 15 days.
What are your experiences, FGB community?

Not what I signed up for!!!
I've been working at an organization for the past 8mos. The manager is a micro-manager and I don't have the resources to do my job. Recruitment is hard especially when you don't have the resources available. The only resource I have is LinkedIn and the company careersite. I've asked my manager several times to purchase Indeed..her response was for me to pay for it and I will be reimbursed. WHAT??? This resource should come from the same bucket as LinkedIn. Did I mention she's a micro-manager? It's very difficult to continue to work here.
Please provide me with guidance. Thank you.
