TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Sometimes things change, people change, their lives change, cultures change,
It's always best to be prepared and cover your assets...don't go in
expecting the world to bend you. Just have your tools ready in case it does.
As I said, I'll write about it since it's happened to me twice in the last
few years with lawyers and Judges involved. Not fun...but ah well.
My advice here? Leave, leave quickly unless there's no other choice. But go
with a pack full of support and backup in case you need to dispute
Unemployment, it comes back to haunt you when getting another job, or
Blacklisting becomes a problem, etc.
