I’m sorry, but bigger and better things yeah?

 

Also I am not sure that what they did was legal…  I could be wrong though.

@mepayne:  That stinks! I would bring it up to the bosses next time you are in there. They probably think you will just slink away quietly because bringing it up would be awkward, but they very much deserve to be made to feel awkward about this and have to explain themselves!

@imalittlebirdie:  Sadly, it is legal. Companies do it all the time. A friend of mine gave an extra weeks notice (three weeks, like the OP) so that the company could find a replacement for her. Her five year anniversary with the company was during that three week time period where she would receive a bonus for being there five years. They called her in and told her that her last day would be the day before her anniversary so they wouldn’t have to pay her the bonus. 

For the OP–I’m sorry. That’s awful, especially when you’re emotionally invested in your job and you’re trying to do the right thing.
