Streaming video is rather cold, but there is no good way of being fired.
I was called in, handed a separation conract, told it was not negotiable, given no reason for the dismissal except for the "new direction BS" and told to take a couple of weeks to look it over.
I know of a major oil company that had a series of layoff and the person given the job of telling the people that this was not the end but a new beginning and we are going to help you find new employment...
At the end of the day, the person delivering that line of bull was called in and told..."this is not the end, this is a new beginning..." She did not let them finish. I was not present, but I think she used a few very descriptive adjectives to describe the situation and the person. Took her paperwork and walked out.
