My Mother-In-Law got this email today
(If I were her boss, I'd probably do the same), but this is phucked up to do to a WHOLE company.. No edits because YBBitch:

It is with deep regret that I must tell you that as of close of business Tuesday, July 29th, 2008 United Title of Texas has been closed by its parent company Mercury Companies of Colorado. Mercury is closing all of its companies outside of CO, which also includes AZ, CA, OR, and NV. As of this moment, all employees are terminated and should either remove their personal items now or return Wed. morning for removal. No files are to be removed or copied in any manner. Files with money in them should also remain as they are now. This is a difficult thing to ask of you but as of this moment you have no legal cause to be in the file since you are no longer and employee of UTT.

This event was brought about by Mercury running out of capital to support their operations. They failed to meet the requirements of their creditors thus losing their line of credit. We became aware of this on Friday but were not notified until 4:15 today of our closing.

Your personnel, insurance, and payroll questions should go to Sheri Gustad at 303-892-7883 in CO.

I will be in the corporate office Wed. morning and will answer questions to the best of my=2 0ability.

I am sorry to lose a team as great as you have been. I pray we will cross paths again in the near future.

Sincerely,
Jim
NO Bullshit, this is all she got... And it's real (as far as she can tell)

I heard on the radio that a woman sued her boyfriend for breaking up with her by leaving a note in the bathroom. She won $150K!
x2. Can't believe there wasn't a YB thread about this. What a terrible precedent to set.

As for the firing...that just plain sucks. Not having the stones to gather up the troops and look them in the eye is just stupid. It's not as though he's firing them...just delivering the message.

Pussy.

Apparently, they got engaged, he convinced her to quit her job in fla (making 80k a year) and move in with him and like two days after she moved in, he told her in a note that he had met someone else after they got engaged and was leaving her for the other girl or some shit.

A company here called about 20 employees into a meeting a few years ago. While they were in the meeting, security packed and cataloged their belongings. After the fake meeting, security escorted them to their cars and gave them a box with their personal effects and said thank you for your cooperation goodbye.

When American Trans Air shut down pilots tried to get on the plane they were going to fly that day and were turned away and told to find a way home. At a few others airlines the guys came in to work to find the doors chained up.

AND when ATA first filed for bankruptcy and announced massive lay-offs the mechanics found out first on the local news. Where were the mechanics you ask? At home? NOPE, in the break room ON THE CLOCK!!!!!!!!

Sorry to hear that. My wife was laid off 2 years ago by one of the Mercury Company title companies in Colorado. They've been closing branches without warning for the last 3 years that I know of. It sucks because they get rid of seniority first, since they get paid more, at least that's how they did it in Colorado.
