Honestly? I would just leave this most recent job off the resume. If the gap in employment comes up (and it will) then he can/should explain himself (and as neutrally as possible- I believe what you are saying but if he said something like that in an interview to me then is rub me the wrong way), but as a recruiter two short term jobs would be a big red flag. If his last job ended in January and he was currently unemployed? I would just think he got laid off.

Was your husband told that he was fired or laid off? The wording from the boss could be very important.  was he still within the probationary period for the company? 

 

Theres a few ways to word it, but as close to honest as possible. i would recommend getting in touch with the recruiter who placed him and ask if there was any feedback for the sudden termination. With a timeframe like 45 days, chances are they aren’t getting paid and will have a scoop and good insight as to where to go. 

Is he able to collect unemployment? 

 

I might suggest that he was recruited out of the company he was at for 5 months at a significantly higher salary and that the company he joined then went through significant restructuring shortly after his arrival which resulted in the elimination of his position. But, then again, I would see what feedback he could get. 

Make sure he has references!!
