How to handle losing your job
Do you need injury lawyers in St Ouen because you are no longer able to do your job due to an accident at work? It is a common scenario that most people will deal with at least once in their lives – being fired. You can be fired from your job for a number of reasons, although some of these reasons may not be legal and you can appeal the decision in these cases. However, in some cases you will be let go simply because you are not working out in the job role.
In this case, it is important to handle yourself with dignity so that you leave an excellent final impression and possibly leave the door open for being rehired in the future. If you have been fired because an accident or injury has affected your ability to do your job then you may be able to appeal this, as there are guidelines governing what a company is able to do about employees with disabilities.
Here are some ways to leave your job with dignity.
- Accept the situation. Don’t try to argue with your employer over whether you should be let go or not. If they have decided to let you go then you must just accept this with grace.
- Leave the door open. If you are gracious and polite and let your employer know how happy you have been at the job then they may consider rehiring you if another position becomes available. Be publicly gracious and accepting of the situation, and avoid saying anything negative as you are leaving. Unless you really feel you have a good case for it, never say the words ‘unfair dismissal’.
- Stay in touch. Don’t overdo this, obviously, but keep in touch with the members of your team that you were friendlier with. This keeps you in mind for the future so that if anything else comes up, you are the first person that comes to mind.
