In 22 years of work experience, all post college, I have never been fired from a job. But one mistake at the bank that I went to a year ago decided to fire me on Tuesday.

I have been doing fraud analytics since 2017. The first bank I worked out I had many good references. My first manager at that bank went to this other bank… And from there he brought me over as well. Than four months ago they fired him, since his firing few other people have been fired also. And then my turn came this past Tuesday.

It was humiliating. It’s a little frightening to because I have the luxury of working from home being able to be near my children. I was working between 55 and 60 hours each week getting a salary and accounted for a 40 hour work week. But none of that matters in the end

Any prayers would be appreciated

I've been fired 3 times, and was once asked asked to quit or be fired. Even though it is depressing at first, it is usually for the best.

In general, you never quit. Make them fire you.

It is not uncommon, in financial institutions, to fire a principle target (for whatever reason) and then sweep his area clean by firing several to all associated with him. It is overtly punishment by association.

In one case I am aware of, a couple of employees ratted out a senior manager who was routinely violating, not only corporate regulations, but federal law. He was fired and, then, shortly thereafter, the whistleblowers were fired ... and soon after than, over half of their office was fired. The purge permitted the corporation to start fresh in that particular area, erasing a lot of acrimony and back biting and power plays and entrapment.

Not in the case I am referring to though, if I had been fired it would have poisoned the well and made it much more difficult to find another job with the taint on my record. Allowing me to quit means that I was able to truthfully able to say that I had never been fired from a previous job doing the same thing. Giving me the option to quit offered me a little dignity.

My POV on being fired relates to unemployment benefits. Where I live, if you quit, you get none. If you get fired, you can claim them and the bureaucracy places the onus on the firing employer to "prove" the firing was for cause.

I note, in a contemporary news item, a Washington Post reporter (or columnist?) announced that she had reached a mutual agreement with the Post that resulted in her leaving her job. A leaked memo made it clear that she was fired.

Unemployment wasn't a concern, I the amount of money in my bank account at the time.... well...it was a number with 6 digits in front of the decimal point. I could, and did, live for more than a year without a job, indeed nearly 2 years.

The case I am referring to, I was the chairman of the Math Department at a Tribal College on an Indian reservation, inadvertently offended someone much higher up than any of my supervisors, someone on the Tribal Council, I never found out who or what it was I did that was supposedly offensive. I was called into the office of the Academic Dean and told that she has been instructed to fire me, she didn't want to, and apologized to me for it...I was told that if I submitted a letter of resignation, I wouldn't have to be fired and I could list her as a reference on my next job, and my students would be informed that I quit due to my contract expiring, rather than that I was fired. To this day, it still says in my CV that I left because "my contract expired", technically true, because that is what I wrote in my letter of resignation, so I don't have to lie.
