Note: This is a U.S. based company. Other note: My boss is the CEO's wife, has an abitrary C-suite title, we don't have an HR department, and we are a company of about 11 people.
My boss called me to basically say I'm on a disciplinary 30 day probation because I missed a 15 minute meeting last week. My reasoning was I was extremely busy during the short holiday week while everyone else was off and I was covering for them and I just honestly forgot about it (it was scheduled the previous afternoon). She also said my communication skills are incredibly lacking and she is constantly unsure of what I'm even working on - even though we check in every morning and I update my tasks in Asana. Went so far as to say "Sure, you've done a lot this year but honestly, those are things I expected of you because that's your job! Do you even want to work here?"
Here's the thing. I've worked at this company for almost 2 years now. I've completed everything they have asked me to do. Even took on extra projects completely outside of the skillset I came in with. And all those projects required communication among my peers who would absolutely vouch for me if asked about it. The online meeting I missed was almost a week and a half ago and my boss waited only until yesterday to say, "Well why haven't you said anything or apologized for missing it?" I even went over any notes that were taken from the only other person in that meeting after realizing I missed it.
Obviously this job is extremely toxic and I'm on the chopping block with an incredibly unreasonable boss. An hour later I saw that my boss posted my position on LinkedIn literally 20 hours before calling me. What's funny is that they listed my job as entry level when it's clear that's not the case at all. I have practically zero motivation to work these next 30 days now but I'm doing my best to just get through it. My boss said she'll check in with me in 2 weeks and hasn't even explained what the "probation" entails. I guess it's just business as usual until they replace me?
What would you guys do in my shoes? I plan on updating my resume after work today and I have some freelancing opportunities should things fall through, so I think I'll be fine. But the work aspect of the next 30 days just seems so... pointless? Hard to really feel motivated to try and get anything done knowing all to well my boss thinks I'm not important to the team due to "communication issues". Funny enough this all coincides with having a re... keep reading on reddit ➡
After spending a year on academic probation, I put in the work to get myself to a good place and I ended up making the Dean’s List! All while working full time during a crazy ass pandemic.
All the sleepless nights and the tears of anxiety sucked, but I’m so glad to finally be off probation.
I can’t find a clear answer to this online so I’m hoping to get some help here.
I’m 8 weeks pregnant and I start my new job next week. I knew I was pregnant at the time of the interview and I haven’t disclosed the pregnancy with my employer nor do I plan to until after the first trimester.
Problem is, they drink alcohol after work and I don’t think I can turn it down without disclosing my pregnancy to everyone.
I have a 60 day probation period but I haven’t signed or read any legal papers yet since I haven’t started yet.
Can I be fired for being pregnant during the probation period? Is it still considered discrimination?
Or am I going to have to work insanely hard throughout my pregnancy to prove that I shouldn’t be fired?
The 64-year-old resident of Askania Nova actively maintained a page on the social network from 2016 to 2019. The woman reposted dozens of publications a day: mostly recipes, tips for the garden and home, and secrets of traditional medicine. Sometimes she also reposted images praising the Soviet Union.
The police opened criminal proceedings on the distribution of Communist symbols through the media. Article of the criminal code, in particular, prohibits the distribution of the coat of arms of the USSR, its elements and images of Soviet leaders. The violation is punishable by 5 to 10 years in prison.
The investigator sent the pensioner's reposts for art criticism examination. The expert found Communist symbols in seven posts.
Three of them depict the General Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee Leonid Brezhnev.
The first photo of him floating on a boat and wearing black glasses is signed: "When people ask me who Brezhnev is, I explain: this is a period in the history of the country when the people lived calmly and were confident in the future."
The second photo with Brezhnev is signed: "Eternal memory to you, man. But as scolded... Salary - 120, work for everyone, in 5 years an apartment...".
Under the third photo there is such a caption: "If in Ukraine to remove the hucksters in power, then in 5 years people will say: what the fuck is that Europe to us."
Another image where the expert found prohibited symbols is divided into two parts. The first one has portraits of Lenin and Stalin and the caption: "we сame, we created, we won". On the second photo of Yeltsin and Gorbachev with the caption: "They came, fucked up, destroyed."
The pensioner's case was considered by the court. The judge sentenced the pensioner to 5 years in prison with a probation period of one year. The court also recovered money spent on the examination from the defendant.
I failed 4 out of 5 courses this sem. Will I be in academic probation. Im a first year what should I do. I cant get into some of those classes for winter 2021 rn because there full and advising is closed rn. Any advice?
In October I tried to repair my phone with CP on it. I came back to pick it up and was met by the FBI. Like most grief stricken people, I told them absolutely everything. Then a week later I got a lawyer.
Since the day I talked to the FBI I quit using drugs. I was smoking pot or doing some drug every single day for 10 years, but I stopped instantly.
I graduated college with a 3.7 GPA and had my best semester ever while dealing with this crisis. My whole family has been waiting for this day a long time. I’m known as “the good one” in the family and to this day people still believe that. I’ll be telling them all real soon that I’m going to federal prison for potentially decades.
I’m living with my dad while I was in college and he knows the situation (but is in major denial and still doesn’t know how bad my punishment will be). I’ve been drinking like a madman every day because I don’t have a job. But that’s going to have to stop soon once I’m on probation. Stopping might be a challenge but I know it’s possible.
Also I’m starting to look for work since I’ve graduated and the new year is starting up. Also my PO will want me working. I’m 27 and never applied for a job in my life. All my experience has been through word of mouth or friends simply asking if I wanted to work for them. I have a decent resume for my geology degree jobs, but those are not going to happen now. So I’m looking for temporary work in warehouses and landscaping companies. But I’ve never job searched until this past year, so I feel really scared about finding a job too.
That’s where I am now. A 27 year old guy with a college degree hoping to find a warehouse job. I’ve pissed off my loving dad with my drinking and laziness but he’s still giving me every chance and supporting me through this nightmare. I’ve been trying to write letters for him to read once I’m in prison. Same with my mom who’s borderline suicidal.
I’ve been thinking about suicide way too much and was close to making calls to hotlines, but I remembered this sub and the posts here have really calmed me down. I know I’ll never do it. The pain of squandering my potential is just so much, and my dad is a model citizen who did everything right.
It’s not all bad. I’ve been going to NA (even though I belong in AA). I’ve been going to sex offender therapy which is HUGE for my mental state. I was working out and eating right for a while but travel and being with family took me out of the groove. I’ve been going on dates... keep reading on reddit ➡
Started December 3rd 2018.. should’ve already been off probation last month but they took their time to release me hoping I’d slip up again and either fail or catch more charges while this month of my release but as of today the judge signed the form to release me with no test..I think I probably stopped smoking for 3-4 months total of days throughout the two years not smoking.. other than that I’ve toked the whole time.. even though it’s extremely irresponsible to be risking my freedom to smoke on felony probation.. I failed 2 tests over the course of 2 years really in the beginning and 4 months ago.. the 1st time I failed was my intake (which you can fail on probation) levels just need to gradually get lower) 2nd test I failed because I got ahead of myself once I learned how to pass drug test and would get closer and closer to each time with my dumbass trying to pass within smoking 4hrs before my test.. (no methods work for masking 4-5 hrs before) and it probably helped that I didn’t drink water also.. pretty much the run down for the long ass paragraph here is that I feel as if I’m seasoned enough to help a couple stoners out make it just like I did..(FYI certo method works) just not on fat people
Hey guys, I graduated from Haas full-time a year ago. I am seeing some sentiment around here that MBA academics is a joke and everyone passes with flying colors, but I wanted to say that that isn't necessarily the reality. Haas has grade non disclosure, but has a 3.0 minimum GPA requirement to graduate. After my first semester, I ended up with a 2.9 GPA due to C+s in core Accounting and Finance, and there were a lot of other people in my boat. I came from a non quant background, and despite trying, it was difficult to balance learning technical coursework I was completely new to with recruiting for consulting and tech PM case prep. It worked out in the end - after my first semester (which was all core classes), I took easier elective classes and graduated with well over a 3.0 (and now have a job in the caliber of MBB consulting or FAANG tech PM), but the academics at Haas were by no means a walk in the park. I found the final exams for finance and accounting to be very hard, and the quants set the curve in the class. A lot of others in my class got placed on academic probation because of this.
If you have a prior business undergrad degree or did a STEM subject, b-school academics may be easy to you, but if you are like me, don't make the mistake of thinking a T10 MBA will be a two year vacation like some make it out to be. The core was straight up brutal to me. While I was fine in the end, being on academic probation and thinking I could potentially get kicked out of b-school really did mess with my head for a bit. Good luck!
CHEK - Chek Cap ltd -This friday the stockprice will have been above 1 dollar for 10 consecutive business days meaning they will no longer be at risk of getting delisted for the foreseeable future. This might pump up the price of the stock a bit. Any thoughts?
I just got the email since I failed two classes this semester, I was a freshman connection student.
Will I be kicked out of the university? What should I be doing next? How hard is it to remove probation?
I'm quite worried now, I already know why I did so bad last semester and I know what I have to do to fix it.
college has been a nightmare, and the lack of medication mixed with the pandemic did not help. I may not have gotten a super high GPA and i might have barely passed my classes, but I passed. Thats all i could ask for.
I have 1 week left on my 6 month probation and have decided that I’m not mentally strong enough to be a dispatcher long term. I’m ok with that, not everyone can do this job and I know I tried my best. My Question: should I finish out my probation with the likelihood that I will be cut next week or should I quit? My coworkers are urging me to stick it out, but the idea of 5 more shifts of panic attacks is not something I’m looking forward to.
I heard that it is very hard to get fired in EU countries after you pass the probation period. Does that mean companies tend to fire more during these initial 6-months?
Three years ago I got a OWVI (visually impaired driving) in Oakland County, MI. I'd never been in trouble before that, not even a traffic ticket. I'm an Air Force veteran, I had a great job at the time, I just turned 30 and life was pretty good.
I went to a friend's house to help him with some flooring and drank like three beers. He lived less than a mile away. I had a tail light out, and thats all it took.
The judge I had is kind of known for getting a DUI a while back. Well, this dude threw the book at me. EIGHTEEN MONTHS of probation. Weekly AA meetings, community service, in person counseling and 3x week PBT tests. All for blowing a .11 and cooperating with the cops (never ever do that, they're not your friends). Also worth noting that I did not have any drugs in my system at my first UA a few days after the arrest.
With probation came my job loss. Kinda hard to drive a company van without a license for a while. That lead to two cars being repossessed and my wife and I getting evicted from our place. Hell, I barely even ate for a while because I always had to have money for my breathalyzers 3x a week (but sometimes up to 5 because they do what they want).
Anyway, I did all the AA meetings and counseling and whatever and it felt so stupid. I never had a problem drinking. But the court said a few beers with the neighbors here and there makes you a raging alcoholic. I stayed sober the entire time on probation. My PO scared the crap out of me. He was like 7ft tall and had a really loud voice. I was always convinced I was going to jail the minute I saw him, even without making any mistakes.
The minute I was free I drank the most I ever have. I threw up and felt like shit for a few days. I haven't stopped since then. I've probably had less than 10 days in the last 15 months where I haven't gone to sleep with the room spinning. I smoke weed all the time now, I never even liked it before. I trip on mushrooms every three weeks on the dot now, but three years ago I never would've considered doing that...drugs were bad to me and only bad people did them.
I moved as far away from that place as possible and I'm never going back. I bounced back in life and found an incredible job, but I still get off work and get as fucked up as possible. The only difference now is that I won't even go to my car to get something out of it if I've been drinking, so I guess I learned my lesson.
Has anyone else gone way off the deep end after probation and never had problems... keep reading on reddit ➡
I get drug tested via color code and a few times by my p.o. When he test me fent showed up the first time. My color code shit uses lab Corp and I’m not sure if they testing for fent or not. I get subs so it’s gonna be a little easier to stop this.
I have 1 month to quit smoking weed to pass my next in person drug test that my p.o warned me about in advance so I can’t fuck that up. I’ve been smoking every day for years I hope that’s enough time I have a relatively fast matabo. Fuck man just got 2 years probation and I’ve been an addict for 3/4 years. I have a feeling it’s inevitable that I’ll go to jail.
Seriously! She got so many chances to change her life around and squandered all of them!!
I don't have anyone else to share this with, so I wanted to share it with y'all :)
Over a year ago, I was caught with some weed in my car. Only like a dime bag, but that was enough for a 1000$ fine, supervised drug testing and all the fun goodies that come with that.
They gave me a plea in abayence, meaning if I completed the year long probation without any issues, the charge would never be added to my record. Well, as of today, I received the official documentation that they have dismissed my case, and I am now done completely!!!
A year ago I thought my life was completely over because of this. That and being in a terrible relationship had me the most depressed I've ever been. Looking back over this year, I've made so many positive changes and have come so far since then. I'm really proud of myself for getting this done!
On January 17, I was asleep in my bed in altoona pa. I lived in a duplex and my bedroom was a small and humble attic space, I had string lights and space stars all over the ceiling, tie dye tapestries with words like "peace, love, empathy" across them, photographs of kurt cobain, small dresser and a tv. As I comfortably slept, about 1030 pm I was woken up to my drunk boyfriend (who was on parole, for hurting me...) came home, spit in my face and hit me, calling me a whore and ripping the blankets off me. Now, by the second time he spit on me, I had had it. I was scared and couldn't keep being bullied like this. I had to get up and into a defensive stance... what transpired was my downstairs neighbor calling the police, alleging that they could hear me screaming for my life. At the time of this incident, I apparently had a warrant for costs and fines, on a traffic ticket. The police were at my door for 15 minutes, after hearing 0 noise from inside the house, after 15 minutes they kicked my door in, pulled guns on me, my boyfriend and dog. They found me hiding in my bedroom, the police report reads I was found hiding in an attic. I was taken to jail, not my abuser, there was nothing I could say even if I needed to. They kicked my door in and were taking me. How do I have them arrest him w my dog and home now destroyed? So at this point I tell them they have done nothing to bring justice to domestic violence. I personally was then charged with obstruction of justice- because they kicked in my door. I was told of course I could beat this and what an awful message this shows victims of domestic violence. When I went to court, they threatened me with jail time and extra charges, so I now am on PROBATION for this incident. With fines, jail time, and now absolutely 0 ways to escape. They have made calling for help a crime. A violation. I'm done.
My probation officer recently told me to not take Kratom anymore because it may affect my saliva drug tests. Anyone have any experience here? Also...can he make me quit a legal (in MN) substance? I know alcohol is legal but I have no legal or personal alcohol problems.
It's been almost a year since the day of my DUI(SoCal) arrest.
Finally got my court appearances over with today. Pleaded a no contest to a .15 BAC and my lawyer got me a wet and wreckless out of it. A nice/lucky victory but at the same time it sucks handing my ass over to the legal system for the next 3 years.
As someone who never plans to get behind the wheel again even if I had one drink, how did some of you who still drank make it through that 3 year probation?
I plan to drink, but responsibly to the fullest. Local I know that rideshare/uber has me covered. But I'm worried what if I stay over a friends house/hotel if i plan to drink that night and next day(8-12 hrs estimate after) I happen to get pulled over/stranded on the highway for whatever reason? How did some of you get through this? Thanks and I appreciate the input
A friend of mine got a job just before the November lock down in later October. He works for one of the major mobile network providers and phone companies in the UK. He's not having a good time of it and he says his targets are quite difficult, especially in an environment where people have no money due to COVID.
However, his appraisal is coming up and he think's they're going to fail him on his probation and let him go. I recommended that he looks through his contract to see what's required of him and he told me that his manager informed me that his employer only gives out contracts when the probation is completed.
I didn't know an employer could do that? Surely if they laid out what they want to pass a probation period and you are failed, even though you would meet the requirements set out in a contract, that can't be fair can it? I mean how you do even know what you're entitled too, what they can and cannot do etc.
Any information I can pass on would be great.
