(John Wiley & Sons, ISBN 0-471-18031-9)
JOB STABILITY IS A THING OF THE PAST
To Survive And Thrive, Learn How To Negotiate Your Departures
Firings, terminations, layoffs, downsizings, constructive discharges, job
re-structurings, rightsizings, merger redundancies, job mobility
pooling--whatever these departures are dubbed, have actually become a
regular and permanent part of American life…and, maybe, YOUR life. You
must be prepared to handle these all too common events—your employer
is. Rather than approaching your departure with dread, view it as an
opportunity to buttress your finances and enhance your self-esteem. Learn
how to say good-bye profitably.
FIRING BACK helps you with comprehensive information and advice about the
entire termination process, from reading the signs of imminent firing;
i Handling the termination
i Countering your employer’s
i Cutting a successful exit
i Deciding when to take
an employer to court for illegal dismissal
The book also covers major issues of concern to recently terminated
employees, including replacing insurance, exploring investment
possibilities, and understanding employment law.
Written in a direct and unabashed style, FIRING BACK outlines clear
strategies for turning the tables on termination. Its major points are
studded with true and sometimes very funny “Notes From The Firing Line”:
anecdotes in the voices of real people that appear throughout the book.
More than just a guide to specific employment negotiations, FIRING BACK
responds to the overall shift in the employer-employee relationship. In
the job climate of the present and future, when you will be dealing with
many employers during your career, the only way to win is to negotiate.
FIRING BACK will prepare you to better negotiate for everything, every
step of the way.
