The Cardboard Chronicles
It’s Friday again and we are back with another installment of the Cardboard Chronicles. Last week we discussed Schelley’s experience with a layoff that occurred within 48 hours of her divorce becoming final. This week, the theme is constructive discharge.
Which, sounds either really gross, or it sounds like that Gwyneth Paltrow “conscious uncoupling” deal. Is this Goop all of a sudden? No. Instead, the idea is a way employers treat employees, especially as things are getting into crisis mode or cost-cutting mode.
This is a conversation between Ted and a woman named Cathrine (yep, that’s the spelling) who has been laid off a couple of times. They discuss “constructive discharge” and The Golden Rule.
