If your employment is terminated for any reason, it's easy to become upset. It's also easy to overact and make things worse on you.
If you receive a termination notice from your employer, it's important that you don't become upset. Stay calm, learn more about the reason for your termination and then implement a plan for protecting yourself.
Even if you don't like your job, there's nothing worse than receiving a notice of termination. Not only will this impact your finances, but it can also take a toll on your personal and professional lives.

"Constructive dismissal" happens when an employer creates a work environment that is so intolerable that it forces the employee to quit. This may happen when an employer wants to fire an employee but doesn't have a legally valid reason to do so. For example, the employer wants to terminate a worker because they are a member of a specific race but wants to avoid an accusation of discrimination or wrongful termination.
No one wants to get older, but aging is a fact of life. The longer we're alive, the more wrinkles we have and the more our bodies decline. That being said, most people can continue to perform in their jobs at the same capacity, even as they get a few more wrinkles around their eyes. And this is why it's so distressing and unfortunate when someone loses his or her job as a direct result of aging. It's also a violation of federal age discrimination laws.
