I was part of a small I.T. department in a charity hospital. We were integrated into the system of a larger, university-based medical system after my staff and I built the charity hospital's network from basically nothing. The takeover is something that happens, we understood that. But most of us received an offer to move to another company immediately. The institution that bought us out basically begged us to stay by guaranteeing us that we had jobs that would be in absolutely no danger if we came over. We came over, integrated our systems, and were immediately terminated on trumped up claims that were completely fabricated. One guy had a heart condition and ended up in the hospital over it. Some of us were even offered other positions in that same institution when a few sympathetic directors and managers in other departments caught wind of what was going on. In order to block that from happening, that same bitch manager made sure that we were terminated without the possibility of re-hire. We went to HR, nothing ever came of it.
