I was recently let go from a non-profit. I was told to get my purse and leave everything else. I was escorted out immediately by HR. I can only imagine what my co-workers thought when I walked past. They insisted on boxing up my personal things. I knew this was coming, and I was calm, quiet, and professional the entire time. There was no scandal. I just missed too many days.
Does this sound normal? I felt like a criminal. To clarify, I was not in IT, nor did I have access to anything that everyone couldn't access. I had no access to money.
